ACT Residual

The ACT Residual is a local, on-campus administration of the actual ACT that can be used to establish the minimum scores needed for teacher education admission.  These scores are not valid for scholarships or to determine eligibility for other purposes.  Only students who are admitted to UCA may take the ACT Residual at UCA.  Scores on this test cannot be transferred to other institutions.

If you plan to take an ACT Residual for any purpose other than admission to the UCA teacher education program, check with the testing coordinator before registering to verify that you are eligible.

Upcoming ACT Residual Dates

The June 10 ACT residual has been canceled.  All who have registered for this test will be automatically moved to the August 12 test.  Those who registered for the April 8 or June 10 test and cannot reschedule for August 12 should see the Testing Center for options.
