ACT on Campus

Taking the ACT is not required for admission to Ashland University. However, good scores could give you access to merit-based scholarships. The university offers ACT on Campus testing for incoming undergraduate students who want to take the ACT, even though they have already applied or been admitted to Ashland University. The scores are reported to Ashland University only, and they will not be sent to the student’s high school or any other academic institution.

To participate:

  1.  Select an exam date and complete the ACT Scheduling form.
  2.  Pay a $65 non-refundable/non-transferable ACT fee. 
  3.  Receive a confirmation email from the AU Student Accessibility Center that you are registered.

For questions, email Dottie Collura at dcollura@ashland.edu.
