The Accuplacer is required for all first-time UVU students who do not have current ACT/SAT scores or who have not met the ACT/SAT requirement or who do not have transfer credit for college level math and English. The Accuplacer exam consists of three sections; Reading Comprehension, Sentence Skills, and Math. The Accuplacer is given in the Wolverine Service Center, 1165 W. 800 S., just north of the main campus.
UVU Students: The Accuplacer is given on a walk-in basis in WS 112. Please see our testing hours for availability and office closures. Although not timed, taking all three subjects of the Accuplacer takes about 2 hours. Testing Services hands the last exam out 1 hour before we close, and so plan accordingly. UVU students can take either the entire Accuplacer exam in one sitting, or in parts. The test costs $10 for newly admitted students testing for the first time. A non-expired photo ID is required to test.
Retake Policy: The cost to retake the Accuplacer is $10 per subject. Testers are permitted to three retakes in a six week period, with those retakes being at least one day apart.
Non-UVU Students: The cost for non-UVU students is $50.
Out of State Students: If you find a location near you that gives the Accuplacer, you can take the exam and fax an official score report to us. Our fax number is (801) 863-7076. Make sure you take the Reading Comprehension, Sentence Skills, and Math portions.
If you cannot find a location that offers the Accuplacer, you will need to locate a college or a university in your area that is willing to proctor a computer based exam. They must be able to monitor the administration at all times. Also, they cannot be someone you know personally or professionally. When you find a location, contact our call center at (801) 863-8482 with the testing location’s name, contact person's name who will be administering the exam, their phone and fax number.
It is recommended that you prepare ahead of time for your testing experience by taking advantage of some excellent review and preparation resources for the Accuplacer test.
