What calculators are allowed on the ACT?

This is one of the most important questions students ask. The ACT is very strict on their calculator policy and you need to make sure you arrive with an ACT approved calculator.

The ACT allows both scientific and graphing calculators as well as basic calculators so long as they do not contain certain advanced features.

You are also allowed to bring a spare calculator with you as a backup which is highly recommended! Trust me, you do not want to get to the math portion of the test and find out your calculator has malfunctioned. If you do not already have a backup you can purchase them easily from Amazon by clicking on the models in the list below.
