Placement Testing (ACCUPLACER)

The Academic Support Center offers ACCUPLACER tests on a regular basis for a $10 fee. Students can contact the Center at 876-5221 to set up an appointment. Scores and placement counseling are available after testing.

The purpose of ACCUPLACER tests is to provide you with useful information about your academic skills in math and English. The results of the assessment, in conjunction with your academic background, goals, and interests, are used by academic advisors to determine your course selection.

You can not "pass" or "fail" the placement tests, but it is very important that you do your very best on these tests so that you will have an accurate measure of your academic skills.
