ACT testing at uConnect

Residual ACT testing during uConnect

What is Residual ACT testing?

National ACTs are administered by on scheduled dates throughout the year and scores are mailed to students after several weeks. These scores are good at any school and there is no waiting period before you can sign up to take the test again.

Residual tests, like the one during uConnect, are administered by a college on almost any day of the year. Scores are available within two business days but are only good at that institution. You must wait at least 60 days between taking residual ACTs. Residuals are most useful after someone has been accepted to a college and is either trying to test out of a prerequisite class or is trying to increase his or her freshman scholarship.
