ACT Residual Testing

UT Tyler Testing Center

ACT residual testing is only available to enrolled, admitted or applicant students who did not take the ACT on a regularly scheduled national test date. Results of residual testing are only made available to The University of Texas at Tyler. No student or high school reports are generated, and no additional score reports may be requested to report scores to any other college.


Students must wait 60 days before re-taking the ACT residual test. When this test restriction is violated, the re-test score will be canceled automatically.
