ACT On-Campus

The ACT On-Campus test is an alternate to the National ACT test.  Individuals who wish to take the ACT On-Campus Exam at Washburn must have submitted a current application and been instructed by Admissions to take the exam before registering.  Students should only take the ACT On-Campus test if they cannot take a National ACT because of a deadline requirement OR if they are trying to satisfy entrance requirements for the WU Teacher Education program*.

  • ACT On-Campus test scores are only valid at Washburn University. The scores cannot be transferred to any other institution or agency.  Score reports will not be generated.
  • The ACT On-Campus test is paper/pencil and consists of the multiple-choice English, Math, Reading, and Science sections. The Writing test is NOT administered.
  • Please note that ACT On-Campus testing is not provided at WU during the months of October, November, and mid-December.
