ACT (National and Residual)

The ACT Exam measures skills in four major curriculum areas: English, Mathematics, Reading and Science Reasoning.

National ACT

National ACT testing information may be obtained by visiting the National ACT website.

Residual ACT

The Residual ACT is offered at TCC's Northeast Campus Testing Center for individuals who:

  • are high school students who would like to take college courses concurrently at TCC.
  • need ACT to meet admissions requirement due to graduating from home-school curriculum, an unaccredited high school or private school.
  • are applying to a special academic program, such as Allied Health, that requires this exam.

Individuals are allowed to retake the exam; however, they must wait 60 days between testing. EXCEPTION: High school concurrent students are allowed to take the test only ONCE during an ACT testing year (Nov. 1 - Oct. 31).

Residual ACT scores may be used at Tulsa Community College only.
