What is the ACCUPLACER® test?

ACCUPLACER is a suite of computerized tests that determines your knowledge in math, reading and writing as you prepare to enroll in college-level courses. The results of the assessment, in conjunction with your academic background, goals and interests, are used by academic advisors and counselors to place you into a college course that meets your skill level.

The ACCUPLACER test is not timed and can be interrupted and returned to as needed. You may use a calculator for the math portion of the test.

 

How are ACCUPLACER scores used?

Unlike traditional tests with a pass or fail score, ACCUPLACER scores indicate your level of academic preparation. ACCUPLACER identifies problems in major subject areas, giving you the opportunity to receive assistance in any identified areas of weakness to support your success in your program of study. Since ACCUPLACER serves as a placement test, degree level scores may enable you to enroll in upper level core classes. However, it will not allow you to exempt classes.

Student may exempt the ACCUPLACER exam if they:

  • Have acceptable SAT/ACT scores.
  • Have successfully completed (passed with a C or higher) college level English and/or math courses from a regionally/nationally accredited post-secondary institution.
  • Have acceptable ACCUPLACER scores within the past 60 months from any regionally/nationally accredited post-secondary institution.
