Based on Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education Policy
- Effective November 1, 2011: You are encouraged to take the National ACT. However, if you are unable to take the National ACT on scheduled dates, the ACT Residual test can be taken. Since the same ACT Residual Exam is given for an entire year between November 1 and October 31, if you take the ACT Residual more than once at SWOSU during this period, only the scores from the first time will count for admission and scholarships. However, all National ACT test scores count for admission and scholarships.
