About ACT Scores

For information about your scores please use this link to the ACT website: Understanding your scores
For freshman admission to Northeastern State University, all students must take the ACT assessment and submit their scores to NSU.

The ACT includes 215 multiple-choice questions and takes approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete with breaks. Actual testing time is 2 hours and 55 minutes.

It is broken into four tests, always administered in the same order: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science Reasoning. The English test measures standard written English (punctuation, grammar and usage, and sentence structure) and rhetorical skills (strategy, organization, and style). The Math test measures skills in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. The Reading test measures reading comprehension. Finally, the Science Reasoning test measures problem-solving skills in the natural sciences, including the physical sciences, biology, chemistry, and physics.

In the U.S., the ACT is administered on five national test dates in October, December, February, April, and June.
