ACT Assessment (National and Residual)

The ACT Exam measures skills in four major curriculum areas: English, Mathematics, Reading and Science Reasoning. Results may be used by TCC counselors/advisors to place students in courses appropriate to their skill level. Also, certain programs at TCC require the ACT as part of their application process.

Individuals are allowed to retake the exam; however, they must wait 60 days between testing. EXCEPTION: High school concurrent/dual enrollment students are allowed to take the test only ONCE during an ACT testing year (Nov. 1 - Oct. 31).
