ACCUPLACER Testing

The ACCUPLACER is a computerized test that provides accurate information about your skill levels in reading, English and mathematics. The University of the District of Columbia Community College uses your scores on this test to determine the appropriate courses for you.

This computer-based test is adaptive, which means that the computer determines what questions are presented to students based on their responses to previous questions.

Students will receive a printout of the test scores upon the completion of the test. The Test Administrator will explain the test scores to students. Test scores are valid for one academic year.

There is no fee for the ACCUPLACER Placement Test and your scores will not affect your admission status.

Who must take the ACCUPLACER Placement Test?

  • All First Time in College Students
  • All Transfer Students who have not completed a college-level English and math test with a grade of C or better
  • All International Students who have a score of 79 or better on the TOEFL exam (or the equivalent)

Please note that students in the groups above will not be able to register for classes if they have not taken this test.

Students will receive a printout of the test scores upon the completion of the test. The Test Administrator will explain the test scores to students. Test scores are valid for one academic year.
