There are two types of ACT: The National ACT and the Residual ACT.
The National ACT exam is accepted at ANY institution which requires the ACT exam for Admissions. You have to register for this exam through ACT, either on-line or by obtaining a registration packet from a university or local high school. The exam is only offered 5-6 times a year and the scores take 4-6 weeks to be mailed to you and the schools that you request. Visit the National ACT website for on-line registration, test prep and frequently asked questions regarding the National ACT.
ACT Residual testing is designed for those U of L students who are enrolled, have been admitted, or are in the process of applying to U of L and have not yet taken the National ACT. The Residual ACT exam is ONLY accepted at the institution where it is taken. For instance, if you took the test at U of L, the scores MUST stay at U of L and are NOT transferable to any other institution. If you are considering more than one school or believe you might transfer to another school, you should take the National ACT. The ACT Residual is offered approximately once a month. The scores are mailed to examinees and made available to our Admission's office the first business day following the administration.
