A free testing of the ACT College Entrance Exam will take place Friday, Aug. 4 at Texas A&M International University.
Dubbed "It's Time to ACT!," the testing will occur in Bullock Hall 101 at 9 a.m.
The regular price of the exam, $39, will be waived by the University on a first-come, first-served basis. Students interested in signing up for "It's Time to Act" are urged to do so by calling the University's Testing Center at 326.2130 as space will be limited.
Veronica Gonzalez, director of enrollment management, said the offering should interest local and area students who are University-bound but haven't had a chance to take the exam.
"Some students have been unable to test earlier because of work conflicts, family responsibilities, scheduling difficulties, or financial concerns. This provides them with a free opportunity to take the admission exam for Fall entry into A&M International," Gonzalez explained.
A second testing is scheduled Aug. 12 at the University.
Regular Fall Registration is scheduled Aug. 22 from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. in the Kinesiology-Convocation Building. Freshmen begin registration at Killam Library 158.
Classes begin Wednesday, Aug. 23. The last day for late registration is Sept. 1.
