We offer both the ACT National and the ACT On-Campus™ (Formerly ACT Residual). ACT On-Campus™ testing at ASU is used to help determine eligibility for undergraduate admission as well as admission to the W.P. Carey School of Business. Unlike the ACT National test, ACT On-Campus™ test scores are valid only at ASU. Registration is limited to prospective students actively applying to ASU or admitted ASU students. NOTE: The ACT On-Campus™ exam may NOT be used by high school students to satisfy their AIMS test requirement.  These scores are ONLY valid at ASU and cannot be used for any other purpose than admission to ASU. 


The ACT On-Campus exam registration fee is $93.50.  Registration fees are non-refundable.
