Learning Outcomes Assessment

The primary goal of the learning outcomes assessment is the on-going improvement of the academic regimen which students adhere to during their undergraduate and graduate matriculation and maintain SUNO’s standard of education quality. We are constantly exploring new statistical techniques to shed light on how SUNO will grow and have a better educational experience.

SUNO’s Mission

Southern University at New Orleans, a public, historically black university, empowers and promotes the upward mobility of diverse populations of traditional and nontraditional students through quality academic programs and service to achieve excellence in higher education.

ACT Residual Testing (for students)

SUNO’s ACT Residual Exam is administered to enrolled or admitted students who were unable to test on a national test date.

How It Works

  • Results are reported only to Southern University at New Orleans.
  • Neither student reports, high school reports nor Additional Score Reports will be reported to any other institution.
  • Testing can be conducted on any date except an ACT national test date.
  • Students may not repeat residual testing until 60 days have passed since their previous testing.
