The University of Louisville Testing Services, conveniently located for students in the Indiana and Kentucky region, is a national ACT test site. We also administer the residual ACT On-Campus test for prospective University of Louisville students.

There are two types of ACT: The National ACT and the residual ACT On-Campus test.

The National ACT exam is accepted at ANY institution which requires the ACT exam for admission. You have to register for this exam through ACT, either online or by obtaining a registration packet from a university or local high school. The exam is 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 online registration, test prep and frequently asked questions regarding the National ACT.

ACT On-Campus testing at the University of Louisville is designed for those who are enrolled, have been admitted, or have applied to U of L. This ACT exam form is ONLY accepted at the institution where it is taken. Therefore, an ACT On-Campus exam taken at U of L is NOT transferable to any other institution. If you are considering more than one school, believe you might transfer to another school, or want your score made available to another agency, you should take the National ACT exam. 

ACT On-Campus scores are NOT usually mailed to examinees. They are made available to our Admissions Office on the first business day following the test administration. You may view only your Composite ACT On-Campus score (only after you have applied for admission to U of L and paid your application fee) on your personalized admissions page on your ULink account by clicking ULink > Undergraduate Admissions > View my Undergraduate Application Status > Application Status > Test Scores > VIEW ALL
