ACT Residual Testing

ACT Residual testing is available to students who are enrolled, admitted or applying to Midway University that cannot take the National ACT on its regularly scheduled test date because the national date does not meet with the university’s program deadlines. The ACT Residual consists of four timed multiple-choice sections – English, Math, Reading, and Scientific Reasoning. The test is approximately four hours in length.

Please make sure to arrive 30 minutes prior to the testing time for check in. A photo ID is required at check-in. You must also bring a calculator (non-graphing; see ACT calculator policy for requirements), pencils. No one is admitted to the testing site after testing begins.

Results to the ACT Residual are distributed to the appropriate Midway University department(s) and results are also are emailed to the individual student. The results of the Residual ACT may only be used to determine eligibility for students who need a score of 21 or higher for admission into their program of study. These results of the residual ACT are valid only at Midway University and cannot be transferred to any other institution or agency. No reports will be issued by Midway University (or ACT) to high schools, colleges or scholarship agencies.

Students who are retesting are required to wait 60 calendar days between test dates.
