The Accuplacer is a computerized placement test designed to provide placement information for students entering higher education. All students entering a college-level English or Math class will be required to take an exam unless they have documentation of previous assessment scores or proof of an Associate Degree (AA or AS) or higher.

Before taking the assessment, or to learn about the placement scores required for a certain class, please meet with an advisor. To schedule an appointment with an advisor, please call your center director or Student Services at (970) 542-3100. Students should talk to their advisor about options after testing if they did not get the score required for their courses. Placement tests are untimed.
