Taking the Test

beginning of content:

No Time Limit

Multiple-choice ACCUPLACER tests are untimed, so you work at a pace that’s comfortable for you. The WritePlacer® test may be timed or untimed depending on your school's policies.

Make an Appointment

Typically, students make an appointment to take an ACCUPLACER test by contacting or visiting their college advising and counseling office. If you don’t live close to your campus, contact the advising and counseling office to learn about testing alternatives available to you.

Disability Accommodations

If you have a documented disability, please contact your institution’s test center for information.

What to Bring on Test Day

Take your photo ID and any special materials that your college may ask you to bring. Contact your institution’s test center for details.

What to Do If Your School is Located in Another State

Contact your institution’s test center to learn more about remote testing options. With the permission of both institutions, you may be able to take ACCUPLACER at a local college or have an authorized proctor oversee your test(s) at a secure facility.
