I lost my son’s ACT student ID, how do I take the test now?
This depends on whether you lost the ACT ticket, or whether you lost your ACT Student ID Letter.
The ACT Ticket looks like this:
And you must bring it with you when you take the test. If you don’t have it, you need to print it again. If you have a working printer and computer at home, you’re set! In an emergency here are some ideas for printing it:
- Going to a FedEx Kinko’s to print it.
- Asking a parents' friend or your friend to print it.
If you lost the ACT ID, you can substitute with an official photo ID: http://www.actstudent.org/faq/id.html like:
- Plastic student ID (not paper or electronic).
- City/State/Federal ID (e.g. Passport, Driver’s License)
In an emergency, you can also get a new ACT ID by going to a notary public. http://www.act.org/aap/pdf/Identification-Letter-Form.pdf
A notary public is generally very common in the United States, and you can get last minute appointments with them relatively easily. Many banks will have a free notary public, as will UPS stores.
