The ACT

What is the ACT?

ACT stands for American College Test. The ACT is designed to assess high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The test covers four subject areas: English, mathematics, reading and science. Each subject area test receives a score ranging from one to 36. The composite score is the average of all four subject area test scores. Many colleges and universities use ACT scores as a factor in making admissions decisions.

How can I prepare to take the ACT?

Wichita State University offers several ACT prep workshops throughout the year. Normally, students must pay $28 to attend a workshop, but eligible Talent Search students may attend one WSU Act Workshop for free.
