    I had sent my son's official newest and increased ACT scores to the USNA back in November (was for the Oct 2015 test date, I sent them twice) they still have not been updated on the portal as of today. I also sent his recent Dec 2015 scores Dec 22. and they don't show although it may be too early to see them. Does anyone know how long it takes? ACT confirmed they sent them. He is going to call tomorrow during his break at school and I just re sent them again today as extra insurance.

    If you go to the Prospective Students page on the USNA website there is a notice message in the bottom right that says they are temporarily unable to upload scores to the CIS portal.

    ACT scores get sent to USNA by CD, basically in bulk. When you speak to ACT get the cycle number, and give that to USNA. The Dec 12 scores should be at USNA right now. My sons were sent on the 27th, and it is two day fed ex, but there was the holiday. The Oct scores should be on portal, and my suspicion is something is wrong there. Get cycle # from ACT and call admissions with it. My son is hoping his December 12 scores appear on portal soon. They appeared today on his USMA portal, but WP gets paper scores from ACT.

    I think none of the academies are great at posting the scores they receive. They have limited staffs at those offices, and I think there is only one person who enters the info into the portals.

    Thanks for everyone's help. I called ACT and got the batch/cycle number which is all the same no matter what academy is to receive it. October should have posted so my son confirmed with the USNA it was and shows on his portal now however the USAFA does not and they have talked to each other. Dec 2015 scores will not be sent out until Jan 13th per ACT to the academies they said and batch/cycle numbers are not issued until then for that Dec.

    Thank you for the update. I was actually being placed on on hold with ACT when your info popped up.

    FYI, my sons Dec ACT scores were sent to each Academy last week. Sent to USMA by paper and mailed, sent to USNA and USAFA by CD. Each Academy has received, but only WP has those scores posted.

    The cycle number referrs to the CD batch of scores which gets compiled and sent to the schools. Thus, if your kids scores were sent by ACT on a certain day to several schools the cycle number will be the same for every school.

    The problem is that the scores get sent to the academies, but then it seems they sit there until someone retrieves each set of scores for each candidate, and posts them on that candidates portal. Each time either my son or I have called with a cycle number, the scores got posted that same day.
