ACT Residual

ACT Residual Testing logoThe ACT assessment is one of the most widely-used tests for undergraduate (college) admissions. Many colleges and universities - including AAMU - either require or accept ACT scores as part of the admissions process. The ACT Assessment is published by ACT, Inc. (formerly known as American College Testing). For further information on the ACT Assessment, visit the ACT website.

Students wishing to take the ACT Assessment have two options: the ACT National Testing Program, and the ACT Residual Testing Program. Although the exams given under these two programs are the same, the policies and procedures governing them are quite different.
