The ACT is a college admissions test designed to measure a student’s readiness for college level coursework. Arkansas Tech University (ATU) accepts the ACT for admission purposes. Admission requirements, including minimum criterion for exam scores, may be viewed at

The ACT is composed of four (4) sections:  English, Math, Reading, and Science.  The maximum score in each area is a 36. The average score from the four (4) sections is called the composite score; this is the score that colleges and universities look at when considering admission and scholarships.  ACT will grade these tests, and the results are available through your ACT web account.
