On-Campus ACT testing at Union College

Take the ACT during orientation.

What is On-Campus ACT testing?

ACT test scores are used for scholarships and sometimes academic advising at Union College. ACT offers two test options: the National ACT and the On-Campus (previously Residual) ACT.

The National ACT is administered by ACT at Union College on pre-scheduled Sunday dates. Union College test center number is 024801, and a clergyman’s letter is available upon request. Scores are mailed to students after several weeks and are good at any school. There is no waiting period before you can sign up to take the test again. Learn more and register at act.org.

The On-Campus ACT (previously Residual ACT) is for students who have applied to and will be attending Union College. Scores are available within two business days, they are good only at Union College and are used to increase freshman scholarships. Test dates are offered during new student orientation fall and spring semesters. Alternate dates November-September may be requested through the registration form below. Testing accommodations for students with professionally diagnosed disabilities can be made when noted on the registration for the test. You must wait at least 60 days between taking On-Campus ACTs.
