The fee can be paid in person at the Roane State Campus in Harriman or Oak Ridge Campus Business office (cash, check, money order, debit or credit card accepted) or by phone (865) 882-4515 using a credit or debit card. When paying for the exam tell the cashier that you are registered for the ACT Residual and need to pay the $40 administration fee. Once your fee has been paid, please ask for a receipt; or if you are paying by phone ask the cashier to mail or email you a receipt. The receipt is absolutely necessary – you will be required to present the receipt to the proctor on the day of your exam. If you do not have a receipt, the proctor has been instructed not to allow you to take the exam. HOLD ON TO YOUR RECEIPT!

What You Need To Bring On Test Day

  • An acceptable form of ID. Only the following forms of identification are acceptable. If it is not on the list, it is not acceptable, and you will not be admitted to test.

    Current (valid) official photo ID: Must be issued by your school or city/state/federal government (such as driver's license or passport) on which both your first and last names and photo appear. The names on your photo ID must match the names you provided when you registered for the ACT.

    ACT Student Identification Letter with Photo: You must present the ACT Student Identification Letter. Download the letter here. It must be completed by a school official or notary public. The official or notary may not be a relative. All items must be completed.

    If your school- or government-issued ID is not in a hard plastic card format, use an ACT Student Identification letter in lieu of or in addition to your school- or government-issued ID.
  • Your receipt of payment for the $40 administration fee.
  • You may bring a non-printing, non-graphing calculator for use during the test. If you are unsure if your calculator is appropriate, you may use the following link to check: A limited number of basic calculators are available at the Testing Center.
  • No. 2 pencils and scratch paper will be provided.

Be prepared to stay 3.5 to 4 hours for the duration of the test. Late arrivals may be denied testing. ACT Residual examinees are required to take the full battery of tests, meaning you must be present for all four subtests even if you only need to increase your score in one.

After Test Day

Your Roane State ACT Residual scores will be available 1 - 3 business days after test day. The results will be forwarded to the appropriate Roane State Middle College officials and a copy will be mailed to you.
