ACCUPLACER


Assessment and placement is required for all students. The Accuplacer assesses skill levels in reading, English composition and mathematics. Test results are used to determine the appropriate course placement to promote student success in college. 

Placement tests are required for: 

  • New students registering for credit-based courses
  • All PSEO students
  • Returning students or transfer students who have not either taken the Accuplacer placement test at another institution or successfully completed a college-level math and/or college-level English course with a grade of "C" or higher

Students are not required to take the placement test(s) if they have:

  • Recent ACT sub-scores of at least 22 in math, 18 in English, and 21 in reading. Students whose sub-scores are lower in one of these areas must take the placement test in that area. (ACT score report cannot be older than three years for English and two years for math.)  To use ACT score, an official copy must be submitted to the Records and Registration Office.

If you have taken the Accuplacer test at another college or have completed a college level math and/or English course at another college, please send an official copy of your scores/grades to the Records and Registration Office.

Accuplacer test scores are valid three years for reading and two years for math.  To obtain a copy of your scores, please complete the Request for Accuplacer Score Report form.
