ACT Residual

The Residual ACT is available through the Admissions Office (405-425-5050 or to those who have applied for admission to Oklahoma Christian University.

Please note: ACT dates for the 2015-2016 school year have not yet been determined. We cannot offer the test until ACT sends us the material and we unfortunately do not know exactly when that will be. We anticipate a mid-November starting date but as soon as we know exact dates we will put them on this page. Thank you for your patience!
