The ACT is set to revise their accommodations system next month in an attempt to simplify and expedite the application process. The ACT is estimating decisions will be sped up by approximately 10 days and the key difference seems to be that students seeking accommodations will now be able to register online first and then work on their accommodations request. As a result, school officials and any outside counselors will be only be prompted to provide only the documentation necessary for that particular applicant and there will no longer be any submission of unnecessary support materials.
Hopefully this makes a big difference for ACT test takers and we will try to remember to update this based on any specific feedback we receive from our clients. As always, please feel free to contribute your comments below!
