Starting September 2020, ACT will begin offering students individual section retesting, online testing and superscore calculations.
Here’s what you need to know about these changes and how students will be affected.
Nebraska will accept online ACT test scores. After students take the ACT online, they should request ACT to send Nebraska their official composite ACT score.
Individual Section Retesting
New to ACT: Students who have already taken the test will be allowed to retake individual ACT section tests (English, math, reading science and/or writing), rather than having to take the entire ACT test again. UPDATE: THIS IS NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL FALL, 2021
New to ACT: ACT will report a superscore for students who have taken the ACT test more than once, giving students their best scores from all test administrations, rather than scores from just one sitting.
UNL-Nebraska will not accept ACT superscore calculations to determine scholarships or admission at this time. Students are still encouraged to have all ACT composite scores sent directly to Nebraska to be considered as part of their student profile.
Students can also self-report up to three composite ACT test scores on their application to UNL. All self-reported ACT scores are verified with ACT. Any discrepancies between official and self-reported scores may influence awarded scholarships/aid and admission decisions.
You need to log-on to act.org to complete the registration process.
Each test costs $55.00. If you cannot pay to take the test a waiver may be obtained if you qualify.
