HOW OFTEN CAN I TAKE THE ACT?
Students may only take the ACT Residual test for admission once during the year (new year starts in October) in which the respective ACT Residual exam is valid. Students also cannot take the residual within 60 days of taking it at any other university.

This restriction is necessary to ensure that recent familiarity with questions on the test form is not reflected in inappropriately higher scores. If the 1-YEAR time limit is violated, the retest scores will be canceled automatically. No refund will be made for such canceled retests.

HOW DO I GET MY SCORE?

Residual ACT scores are for students who:

  1. are enrolled,
  2. have been admitted, or
  3. are applying for admission to ECU.

Students may view scores after 1:00 p.m. on the following day after each test date (call Admissions at (580) 559-5628).  

Scores are valid only at ECU and cannot be transferred to any other institution or agency.  No score reports will be generated by ECU (or ACT) to students, high schools, colleges, or scholarship agencies.
