What is Residual ACT?

The Residual ACT test is the same as the National ACT and is particularly for students who did not take the ACT on one of the national test dates but need ACT scores to meet an upcoming deadline for enrollment into WSU. The Residual ACT score can be used to determine a students English and Math placement or to test out of the classes entirely. 

This test is limited to students who will be attending WSU as score reports cannot be sent to any other college or university.

Allotted testing time between residual ACT testing is 60 days.
