Test Results

  • ACT Residual scores are used for admission and placement only.
  • Scores are not used for scholarship purposes.
  • Scores cannot be reported or transferred to any other institution.



  • ACT restricts the number of times a student may take the ACT to 12 times total. Residual Testing counts toward that maximum. Scores that exceed the maximum will be canceled without refund.
  • Students may not repeat Residual testing until 60 days have passed since their previous testing
