Life Enrichment students must take and pass the Next Generation Reading, Writing and Mathematics (Arithmetic, Quantitative Reasoning, Statistics, and Algebra) sections of the Accuplacer test.

Students may be exempt from taking one, or all, sections of the Accuplacer test if:

  • They have satisfactorily completed courses equivalent to ENGL 1101 and MATH 1001 or MATH 111 at regionally accredited institution(s), or
  • They submit official SAT scores that are no older than seven years and which are at least 500 in both Verbal/Critical Reading and Mathematics, or
  • They submit official ACT scores that are no older than seven years and which are at least 21 on both English and Mathematics. 

Due to COVID-19, Accuplacer is being administered online via Examity and in person, by appointment at AU’s Testing and Disability Services center. A fee of $25 is applicable for students taking the test through Examity. The first instance of taking an in person test at the TDS center is offered at no cost; necessary retest instances have a $25 fee, per test.

Writing = 4 or higher to be placed in ENGL 1101
Reading = 237 or higher to be placed in ENGL 1101

If a student does not achieve the desired placement score after the second test, the student may re-test three months (90) days after the first re-test (the second test date). If a student does not achieve the desired placement score after the third test, the student may re-test four weeks (30 days) after the third test. This applies to all subsequent re-tests.

  •  Students are given these breaks in order to have time to focus on improving scores by reviewing practice materials and test descriptions on the ACCUPLACER website to further enhance their understanding of the test.
