The ACT-Residual is offered to applicants of the University of West Georgia who for whatever reason did not take a nationally standardized exam such as the SAT or ACT or who have been informed by the Admissions Office that this test is required in order to meet the eligibility for admission.

BEFORE registering for a test date, please note the following:

  1. Only applicants to UWG are eligible to register for the test.  You must have already submitted an application, been assigned a 917 student ID number, and told by an admissions representative that this test is an option for you.
  2. The scores from this test are reported ONLY to the UWG admissions office.  They are not sent to any other institution or person.
  3. Cost for the ACT-Residual is $60, payable online only by debit/credit card.  Should an examinee be absent from the test date for any reason, a partial refund of $25 can be requested.  The test fee is NOT transferrable to another date.
  4. Check-in for the test begins at 7:45 am on the test date, and the test starts promptly at 8:00 am.  Anyone who arrives late, regardless of the reason, will not be eligible to test. Testing will conclude around 12:00pm.
