ACT Residual 

GENERAL INFORMATION:

The ACT Residual (ACTR) is a three-hour exam for students that are seeking entrance into the Teacher Education Program or admission to UTC. 

The Math Department uses the math score from the ACT or the ACTR in order to determine the correct math course placement for a student.  You may take the math portion of the ACTR if you only need the score for math placement.  This portion of the test is 60 minutes.

The ACTR test score is only valid for UTC and cannot be transferred to another university.  If you are planning to use your ACTR score in order to apply for scholarships, please check with the Admissions Office (423-425-4662) to be sure the residual exam satisfies scholarship requirements.

On test day, a total of three and one-half hours will be required for exam administration unless you are taking it for math placement. 

FEE: $60 payable to UTC by credit card, check or money order (non-refundable)

TEST DATES: The ACTR is scheduled by appointment only based on availability in Hooper Hall, Room 205.

PLEASE NOTE:  We are not able to administer the ACTR from October 1-31, 2017.
