Qualification Exam: ACT Residual

ACT Residual

All individuals under the age of 21 applying for admission to Washburn University are required to submit ACT scores. Ordinarily the test is taken at a designated testing site on one of the six ACT National Test dates. An individual not able to participate in ACT National Testing in time to meet Washburn’s deadlines, may arrange to take a “Residual ACT” on campus at WU.  If there is a national ACT test date that is still available, students will be encouraged to sign up for that. Only individuals who have applied to Washburn and been told by Admissions that they need the ACT Residual will be allowed to sign up for the exam. THE SCORES FROM THE ACT RESIDUAL WILL ONLY COUNT FOR ADMITTANCE TO WASHBURN UNIVERSITY.  YOU MAY NOT REQUEST ADDITIONAL SCORE REPORTS FOR ANY OTHER COLLEGE.

The ACT Residual is a paper/pencil test consisting of 4 parts, English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. The test takes about 3 ½ - 4 hours to complete.  The cost for the ACT Residual is $70.  Students must come to the Center for Prior Learning and Testing to register and pay for the test prior to the testing date. A current and valid picture identification such as a driver’s license, passport, or picture student identification card must be presented when registering and also on the day of the test. When individuals register for the Residual ACT, they will receive a publication “Taking the ACT” which describes the test and provides other important information.
