Who Can Take The Residual ACT:

Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education Policy:  Students may only take the ACT Residual test once during the year in which the respective ACT Residual examination is valid (November 1, 2012 through October 31, 2013), and the test shall not coincide with a national ACT test date.  Scores will be cancelled and no refunds will be provided for violations of this policy.

Students are encouraged to participate in the national ACT tests dates (six are offered per year).

Students who are enrolled, have been admitted or are in the process of applying to UCO and cannot take the National ACT on a regularly scheduled test date because the test date does not meet UCO's deadlines may take the Residual ACT.  Reports will be sent only to the UCO Admissions Office.  Students may not order score reports. If you are 21 or over, you should take the Adult Placement test located in First Year Experience in the Nigh University Center, Room 134.

Repeat Testing:

If you choose to retake the exam, there must be at least 61 days between your test date and the testing year deadline (November 1, 2013).
