ACT On-Campus Testing

On-Campus testing is available to students who were unable to test on an ACT National Testing date or desire to retest at OUR campus. Scores from this test can only be used on our campus. ACT Residual Testing is limited to students who are in the application process, have been admitted, or have enrolled at OUR institution. Score results are official and can be used for admission, course placement, and other enrollment management decisions.

Requesting Accommodations

University of Arkansas Testing Services is committed to providing the needed accommodations for test takers with disability to take the institutional tests; however, this is a process that will take time. Your request for accommodations should be submitted as early as possible. Documentation review is done by the professional staff of the Center for Educational Access (CEA) and takes approximately two weeks once your complete paperwork has been received. If additional documentation must be submitted, it can even take longer to review everything from the time the new documentation is received until the review is complete.


The CEA is established to facilitate campus access for students with disabilities, chronic health or temporary limitations. Please forward all documents to the CEA Office by forwarding them to ada@uark.edu. indicating which institutional test you intend to take along with what accommodations you are requesting. You may also contact them at 479-575-3104. Once your documents are evaluated, let us know so we can request to receive your accommodations. You can contact us by writing to testsvc@uark.edu.
