Accuplacer (NG) Exam and Score Guides


Accuplacer is a computer-based test designed to assess an individual’s knowledge of subject areas. Southeastern administers two subject areas: Math and English. These exams are used to remove developmental requirements placed on a student based on ACT scores. The Accuplacer exam may not be used in place of the  ACT test that is required for Admission. The Accuplacer exam is not timed. Accuplacer exams are administered Monday through Thursday, by appointment in the Office of Testing. Students may not place out of developmental requirements if they have earned a final grade in the course (or its equivalent) at an accredited college or university. A non-refundable administrative fee of $10 is assessed for each exam.
