Colleges use Accuplacer to assess your skill levels in reading, writing, and math to determine if you’re ready to take courses that will earn you credits at that school. If you show proficiency in a subject, you won’t have to take developmental courses and can start earning credits right away that count toward a degree or certificate.
The Accuplacer is an untimed test of math, reading, and writing skills required to help determine your admission status into The W or other institution of higher learning.
If you have received instructions from the Admissions Office of a Mississippi four-year institution of higher learning that you must take the Accuplacer, you may schedule a test date at The W.
Accuplacer is made by The College Board. They offer a free online study guide.
To request a date, complete the online form. Dates fill up quickly, so please schedule your test early. Registration must be made by Wednesday, prior to the test date you plan to register for.
You may take the test more than once, but you must wait 30 days to be tested again.
If you cannot keep your scheduled test appointment, please call to cancel as soon as possible. Refunds are not issued for missed tests.
