The ACT fee is $80 USD, which has been in effect since December 23, 2019. Please note that if you submit your registration form and then decide to change your ACT date, you will need to pay the ACT fee again. In addition, Gallaudet University is not responsible for any consequences that result from any mistakes (if any) that you make on the registration form. Please note that if you ask the ACT coordinator for an ACT fee waiver, your request will not be granted. The ACT fee and the late/standby fee are nonrefundable. If you cancel your registration for an ACT date or choose not to attend on the date of the ACT indicated in your registration, the payment is forfeited. Payments cannot be held for the next test date.

Credit/Debit Cards

Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express cards are accepted up to two days before the selected ACT date. When you provide your credit/debit card information on the registration form, please double check it to make sure that it is correct. After you submit the registration form, please wait for an automated email notification. If your credit/debit card is declined, you will receive an automated email informing you that you are not registered for the ACT date that you have selected and will need to email the ACT coordinator for more information. If the transaction for your credit/debit card is successful, you will receive an automated email with your registration number. Please print out this email and bring it with you.


The deadline is one week before the ACT date that you have selected. If you missed the deadline, a late fee of $5 will be charged.
