Accuplacer Placement Test
Find Your Way With ACCUPLACER
The Accuplacer is a computer-based placement test designed to assess individual skill levels in Reading, English, and Math. The results of the Accuplacer are used by academic advisors to place students in the college courses matching their skill level, goals, and academic background.
Who Takes the Accuplacer
Students entering into any SD BOR institution or high school students seeking dual credit without valid placement scores must take the Accuplacer. A valid placement score is an ACT or Accuplacer score received within the South Dakota Board of Regents Guidelines within the last five years. Some SD BOR schools or departments may require additional placement tests or requirements; please discuss this possibility with your advisor.
Study materials, and more, are available at Collegeboard Accuplacer.
Results are available immediately after completing the test; students will receive a copy of their score report. Do you need your scores sent to a different institution? Please complete the Score Report Request Form.
Schedule an Accuplacer
There isn’t a time limit for the Accuplacer. Most students take 30-45 minutes per section; the number and difficulty of questions vary and are based on the responses to previous questions. Students may request an appointment to take the Accuplacer during normal operating hours. We do not administer Accuplacer tests during midterms or finals week (see Academic Calendar).
