Lost my son's ACT test student ID. How to retrieve or replace?

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:

act ticket

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: https://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. https://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.
