Malvern High School ACT Code
041 - 527
All college-bound seniors should take the ACT in October and/or December. Additionally, many Arkansas colleges and universities require the ACT to be taken in early fall to qualify for institutional scholarships.
February is the last national ACT exam that the Arkansas Department of Higher Education guarantees to accept in consideration for the Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship. Remember that Arkansas is prone to winter weather, therefore the February exam is sometimes canceled due to snow or ice.
Seniors who receive free or reduced lunches qualify for a voucher for a free ACT exam, which waives the $42.50 ACT exam fee and provides free access to online ACT preparation. Students should see Mrs. Rhea in the guidance office to request a voucher. Students may use a maximum of two vouchers. Vouchers are limited and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be available after Labor Day.
Each year, ACT provides a limited number of fee waiver vouchers to Malvern High School for free/reduced lunch students to use. Malvern High School has exhausted all of our available vouchers for the 2016-17 school year. I will be unavailable to provide students with any more vouchers for this year. The regular ACT registration fee is $42.50.
I apologize for any inconvenience.
This does not affect juniors who will still take the free ACT exam in March.
Vouchers will not be given to juniors this year because all juniors will take a free ACT exam in early March.
