Option Two

The Residual ACT is offered a minimum of 20 times per year, usually on Wednesday, except during registration at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters.

The Residual ACT WILL NOT transfer to a senior college and can only be used for entrance to NEMCC! The Residual ACT CANNOT be used for MTAG!

Each examinee must have an Admissions Application for NEMCC on file or he/she will be provided one to complete prior to the test administration. The Residual ACT is only good for the institution at which it is administered; it is not a transferrable score.

Please bring a current photo ID, pencil(s), and calculator with you to the test. You must wait 60 days between each attempt at the Residual ACT.

The cost for the Residual ACT is $40 and is payable by cash, check or money order payable to NEMCC. Examination is generally completed within 4 hours of start time.
