Accuplacer Math & English Testing for Course Placement
The Accuplacer is a computer-based placement tool designed to measure reading, English and math skills, and provide course placement for students entering college. Results from the Accuplacer test help you identify academic strengths and needs to assist in the appropriate course selection.
The Accuplacer is administered as an untimed multiple-choice, computer-adaptive test. Your scores and course placements are provided to you immediately upon completion.
Testing Services offers Accuplacer testing to you free of charge on a first attempt. If you wish to retake the Accuplacer, you may complete the Test Registration Form and request a new date/time to take the exam. You may take the test no more than three times in an academic year.
If you are unable to test on location or virtually through MSUM, we may be able to issue a voucher to test at an institution closer to you. Contact Testing Services for more information.
