All first-time entering students admitted to Rogers State University are encouraged to have ACT scores (On-Campus or National). The ACT is a standardized test used to measure student readiness for entry-level college placement. ACT scores are important because they provide the university with information about student readiness for course placement. 

On-Campus Testing

The ACT On-Campus testing program is provided for participating colleges that wish to administer the ACT to their enrolled or admitted (or in the process of being admitted) students who were unable to test on a national test date. ACT On-Campus test scores are valid only at the college administering the test.

On-Campus test scores will be available at each RSU campus for enrollment purposes within 2 hours of administering the test. Results are reported only to the college administering the test. No student scores reports are generated, and no scores will be reported/released to any other college or outside agency. Upon request, Testing Center/Admissions staff will release test scores to the student presenting valid photo identification in person. Scores are not released over the phone or by email.
