Any fall applicants who need to reschedule ACT or SAT testing should reschedule to the next available test.  Students who were scheduled for the April 4 National ACT, should reschedule to the National ACT on June 13.  The University of Akron’s Testing Center is still working on a make-up date for the canceled March 21, Residual ACT.  We hope to have more details later this month.  As with the summer, please have students contact us with any issues related to testing.  Should any future national test dates be postponed, we will update everyone as any changes arise.
