How Schools Use Your ACT Scores

Potential colleges and universities use your score report as a window into who you are.

Colleges and universities use the various score ranks to evaluate your potential. For example, if you rank high in a particular section that matches well with a specific program, that bodes well for you.

A lower rank in other areas clearly shows either:

  • You likely shouldn’t pursue that academic program
  • You need to take additional classes to improve your skills and knowledge

ACT score reports contain a wealth of information that you and prospective schools can use in decision-making.
