Residual ACT: American College Test
The residual ACT usually is administered to prospective students of
selective admissions programs at the school you are applying to. The
test is given at least once a month, from September through the
following February. Applicants must register in person for this test in
Testing Services at least one week in advance. The fee is $40. Scores
are sent to the student within 7-10 business days; however, these scores
will not transfer to and are not accepted by other institutions.
Examinees wishing to retest must wait 60 days between residual ACT
tests. A photo ID is required at the time of the test. Calculators
acceptable for the test will be checked at that time.
The Residual ACT (ACT-R) is an institutional administration of the
National ACT given to prospective Arkansas Tech students who have been
in school during the previous three (3) years. These tests are graded by
Arkansas Tech in accordance with the procedures set forth by ACT, and
scores will be available by 9:00 a.m. on the day after the test. Do not
forget to bring a picture ID with you on the day that you test.
1 or more sections: $29.00 (exact cash only, no checks)
* Students who cancel or are absent for their scheduled date without
providing at least 24 hours notice will forfeit their testing deposit.
The Residual ACT is given at 8:00 a.m. several times during each
academic school year. Students should arrive at the testing center by
7:50 a.m. See the following page for test dates for this academic school
Students must come by the office and pay $29.00 in cash in order to

Residual ACT scores are good for Arkansas Tech ONLY and will not
transfer to any other college or university. Any student who plans to
transfer from Tech should take the national ACT and not the Residual
