Although Bevill State Community College does not require an ACT score for admission, an ACT score can be used for placement in English and Math courses and is a requirement of the application process for various Health Science Programs.

The ACT comes in two versions, the ACT: On-Campus Testing and the National ACT. Both versions are produced by the same company, and they are essentially the same tests.

What is the difference?
On-Campus Testing scores will only be transferred for the purpose of applying for admission to an Allied Health Program at a community college located in the State of Alabama. This test is administered based on appointment with the campus Testing Coordinator.

The National ACT is transferrable to any college or university and is given at multiple testing centers across the United States, including Bevill State, on designated Saturdays. Students planning to take this test must register through
