Registration open for summer ACT test prep

April 18, 2019 - The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Continuing Education office has opened registration for the annual ACT Summer Institute, an intensive ACT test preparation course held on campus for high school students looking to prepare for the ACT test and increase their scores. Live-online ACT prep classes are also available.

“Students build confidence and give themselves an advantage as they head into the ACT test by taking our rigorous ACT Summer Institute prep class,” said Randy Zimmermann, director of UWRF Continuing Education. “According to our curriculum partner, Educational Testing Consultants, the change of four incorrect answers to correct answers can increase an ACT score by three points. This improvement expands a student’s opportunities for admission and scholarships.”

Students spend four days in the classroom with an expert instructor who specializes in ACT test prep. Lessons include test-taking strategies, question formats, and the ACT components for math, English, reading comprehension, and science reasoning. To extend learning beyond the classroom and help students be prepared on exam day, participants are given access to an online portal that contains pre-recorded sessions, quizzes, discussion forums and online office hours.

The course fee of $449 includes 20 hours of instruction, the official ACT text, workbook and access to the online learning portal. A $50 discount is available with early registration.  Participation is limited to 30 students and advance registration is required. Find details online at or by emailing Program Manager

UW-River Falls offers a full portfolio of test preparation classes for the GRE, GMAT, LSAT and SAT admissions exams, including free strategy workshops for the graduate admissions exams.  Test preparation classes and workshops are provided in partnership with Educational Testing Consultants, a leader in higher education test preparation.

The UWRF Continuing Education office provides lifelong learners with academic, professional development, and enrichment programs that are practical, flexible, convenient, and affordable.
