ACT site down?

Hey all I've tried on multiple computers to log into the act site and I keep getting this privacy error:

I tried to do chat but it says my session was closed because of no agents present. I tried to call and just get a busy signal. Anyone know what's up?

    Yes, the ACT site is down so you cannot log in to check scores - says it's down for maintenance and I cannot get in touch with anyone either.
    Very frustrating.

    I spoke with someone 2 hours ago. Hopefully it is up soon. Anxiously awaiting scores here.

    Looks like I was able to finally log in, but my scores are not there. Is anyone else getting their scores from October date today? Maybe the outage delayed the score release and they will still be released today. I'm on the west coast, does this make a difference? Any insights would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    @JakefromStateFarm my daughter did not get her scores either, we are in Texas. I called and they told me they come out in batches. I believe it can be any time between now and January.

    Thank you @jeepgirl I hope they are not done with today's batch, crossing fingers...

    I got my sons scores today, I had to keep logging in but I finally got them. Keep trying! I seemed to get a little farther each time I tried.

    @jakefromstatefarm what state? We are in CA and got ours last night at 10pm.
  • JakefromStateFarmJakefromStateFarm Registered User Posts: 9 New Member
    @LvMyKids2 We are in CA too, still nothing. I just talked to a friend from my school who took the test with me, same test site and he also did not get his scores yet (as of an hour ago), although another guy from my school who took it at another site did get his score today so I hope it's not an issue with my test site.

    If anyone's interested, here's what ACT told me in a chat today (still no results for me): The ACT tests are scored randomly, and all the new available scores are posted to student accounts every Wednesday and Friday throughout the score release window. (The first week the scores are initially posted on Tuesday and Friday)

    Scores are posted only once per day, usually before 9 am Central Time. The score release window for the October ACT test is November 14th 2017 through January 2nd 2018.
