Gov. Andy Beshear has announced that incoming Kentucky high school seniors who have previously taken the ACT will be eligible to take the test a second time for free during a statewide ACT retake day in the Fall of 2022.
The date of the free retake day will be designated by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) in the Fall of 2022. More information on the date and locations will be provided to local school districts in the coming months.
The ACT is the admissions exam used by the Kentucky Department of Education to measure a student’s level of readiness for college in core academic content areas, including English, mathematics, reading and science. The current price for the ACT in Kentucky is $37 for online testing and $38 for paper-based testing.
