"The ACCUPLACER"

Testing You for Reading, Writing and Math Placement

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 EnglishThe 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.
