Test Dates

Test dates and online registration deadlines for the 2014-2015 school year are shown in the tables below.  Registration opens in August.  See Register now! for more information on how to register.

Important Reminders
  • Tests are normally taken on a Saturday morning.  Students whose religion prohibits testing on Saturday may choose a non-Saturday test date when they register.
  • NUMATS offers testing throughout the school year for the ACT® and SAT®; however, students must test before March to have their scores considered for most state award ceremonies. All EXPLORE® test dates through NUMATS are before March. 
  • Students should register as early as possible to increase the likelihood that they will be assigned to their first- or second-choice test center.  Test centers are assigned by the testing agencies, and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  If seats are not available at the test centers you choose, the testing agencies will assign you to the nearest available test center.
