ACT Residual

The ACT assessment is one of the most widely-used tests for undergraduate admissions. Many colleges and universities, including Middle Georgia State University (MGA), either require or accept ACT scores as part of the admissions process. The ACT Assessment is published by ACT, Inc. (formerly known as American College Testing). For further information on the ACT Assessment, visit the ACT Website

Students wishing to take the ACT Assessment have two options: the ACT National Testing Program, and the ACT Residual Testing Program. Although the exams given under these two programs are the same, the policies and procedures governing them are quite different.

  • The ACT Residual can only be taken every 60 days.
  • The exam is 4 hours long, consisting of four subject areas of English, mathematics, reading, and science.
  • Examinees must apply for admissions to Middle Georgia State University prior to the testing date. If the examinee has not applied for admission to Middle Georgia State University, they will not be eligible to take the exam. To apply to Middle Georgia State University, visit our website at
