ACT Residual

The ACT Residual is a standardized test used to measure student readiness for entry-level college placement. The ACT Residual testing program is provided for participating colleges that wish to administer the ACT to their enrolled or admitted (or in the proves of being admitted) students who were unable to test on a national test date. In contrast to the National ACT test scores which are valid nationwide, ACT Residual test scores are valid only at the college administering the test.


CLEP exams help students earn college credit for what they already know, for a fraction of the cost of a college course. 

Institutional Effectiveness Assessment

The assessments that are administered are the Proficiency Profile for general education and Major Field Tests (MFT) for the subjects of biology and criminal justice. Our testing services include national proctored exams by internet-based assessments from the Educational Testing Service (ETS)

Millar Analogies Test (MAT)

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) assesses the analytical thinking ability of graduate school candidates — an ability that is critical for success in both graduate school and professional life. The MAT helps graduate schools identify candidates whose knowledge and abilities go beyond mere memorizing and repeating information.
