In response to feedback from students, teachers, and colleges, ACT Inc. recently announced that it would add a test date in July. The change will come at the beginning of 2018. However, this year’s ACT schedule (2016-2017) will still have the historical standard of 6 dates between September and June.
On the contrary, the College Board is quickly moving ahead with a summer 2017 SAT test date: August 26, 2017. Registration ends July 17, 2017. It is of note that the SAT will not administer subjects tests on that date.
