Testing Center: Residual ACT


The ACT-Residual test (ACT-R) is used for admission to Defiance College. It is designed for those who were unable to test on an ACT National Testing date. The ACT Residual Test is strictly limited to students who have officially applied, have been admitted, or have enrolled at Defiance College. Scores from residual testing are only valid at Defiance College and cannot be transferred by transcript or other means to any other institution or agency,

The test takes approximately 3 hours and consists of four parts:  English (45 minutes), Mathematics (60 minutes), Reading (35 minutes) and Science Reasoning (35 minutes). There is usually a 10 minute break after the Mathematics test. Scores are reported to the admissions office within 2 business days of testing.
