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).
