Go to ACT.org to register. The ACT costs $46.00 (no writing) or $62.50 (with optional writing test) + $29.50 (if registered late).

The Residual ACT is exactly like the National ACT except that scores are valid only at the college or university where the test is actually taken. Residual ACTs taken at USU provide scores valid for USU purposes only. A student cannot take the ACT Residual at USU and use scores for other schools. Residual ACT scores are not valid for NCAA Clearinghouse purposes.

  • Cost: $65.00
  • Where: Administered at USU Testing Services, University Inn 115
  • When: Wednesday mornings 8:30 a.m., by appointment only
  • Register: register at www.registerblast.com/usu/exam
  • Scores:  Scores are available approximately 2 to 3 weeks after the test and will be emailed directly to the test candidate at the address he or she provided during the registration process
  • Notes:
    • ACT Residual may not be repeated (at USU or any other school) within 60 days.
    • October is a “dead-month” for ACT Residual, and ACT does not allow the exam to be given during this month. 
    • Be aware that there may be occasional exceptions to the above appointment dates and times.
    • Testing schedules often fill to capacity, so an advance appointment is required to ensure a seat. Walk-in testing is allowed but will not guarantee a spot
