Accuplacer Placement Testing
The Accuplacer was designed to assess skill levels in reading/writing and math to determine appropriate course placement that will ultimately set students up for success. Students who were admitted without ACT or SAT scores and who have not yet taken a college level English or Math course should take the Accuplacer. Students who have taken the ACT or SAT but believe that their test scores do not reflect their ability in math and/or English may also elect to take the Accuplacer.
