Check your college websites for score report deadlines and testing requirements. Not all colleges require the ACT (or SAT). Most colleges will need the October or December test dates if you are a senior.
Sending Scores: Identify your recipients BEFORE you take the test. If you send your scores to one CSU campus, you can share the scores with the other CSU campuses on your CSU Mentor Account. Sending your ACT score to one UC campus will allow other campuses to have access to your scores.
The ACT does not send all of your test scores; instead of getting all the SAT scores you ever received, the ACT only sends the scores for a single testing date.
