ACT at BYU-Idaho

The ACT comes in two versions, Residual and National. Both versions are produced by the same company, and they are essentially the same test. The most important difference is that the Residual ACT is only valid at the school where it is taken and scored. The advantages of taking the Residual ACT at BYU-Idaho are that it is given more often, registration is easier and scores are available sooner. The disadvantage of taking the Residual ACT is that the score is only valid at BYU-Idaho.


To schedule a Residual ACT at BYU-Idaho:

  1. Appeal at the Admissions Office to take the test.
  2. If approved, pay the ACT Residual Fee through the Admissions Office. Tests cannot be scheduled until the fee is paid.
  3. Schedule a date with the Testing Center to take the test. Tests are normally administered on Thursdays at 8:00AM. Appeals for another day will be considered.


Note: the Residual test is not offered over holidays, during peak testing times, or during the months of November-December.



The National ACT is no longer administered at BYU-Idaho. To schedule a time to take the ACT test at another approved site, please visit the Official ACT Web Page.
