It consists of tests in:

  • English

It also includes an interest inventory and a student profile section to obtain information for counseling and to help students with their educational plans.

The test is offered five times each year at WSU and at many other colleges and high schools.

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 student's 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.

Students will NOT receive any score reports, reports are sent ONLY to the admissions office at WSU. Contact Admissions for any information regarding scores at 801-626-6743.

For students who were not enrolled at WSU at the time of testing, their scores will be kept by the admissions office until they apply to WSU, at which point their scores can be attached to their records. If you have questions about this, or to get your scores put on your records, contact the admissions office at 801-626-6743 or

A tester must wait 60 days to retake the Residual ACT.

If you need to cancel or reschedule your testing appointment, you must reach out to prior to your testing time in order to apply your payment to a future testing date or receive a refund. There will be a $10 refund/rescheduling fee.

ACT Residual testing is NOT available during the month of October.
