February 12 is your last chance to retake the ACT. It is shown that students who study generally increase their score by 2 points (that means if you got a 16, you are likely to get an 18, if you study).

The registration deadline for this date is Friday, January 7. Below is a list of some familiar colleges/universities with the minimum-average ACT score they require:
