Placement test results will be available at the conclusion of the test in the form of a report. You will get a print out of your score report when you take the test and you'll also receive an email with a link to the report, which you'll be able to access at any time. You and your advisor will have access to this score via NEIUport.
Important Note: Accuplacer has updated their tests to "Next Generation" versions of their tests. The only test that remains the same is WritePlacer. The existing tests will no longer be available to administer as of January 2019. Northeastern has chosen October 2018 as the best time to make the switch to the next gen tests.
As a result, below are two sections of result interpretation. First, the tests as of October 2018. Below are the "classic" test results for those who took the test prior to October 2018.

Students can place into a math course based on their ACT or SAT math score.
Students can also be exempt from taking the reading portion of the test with an ACT score of 20 or higher or an Evidence Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) SAT score of 480 or higher.
Note that there is no ACT/SAT equivalence for the writing portion of the test.
Please locate your ACT or SAT math score to find your beginning math course(s).
Also note that by taking the math portion of the test, your advisor will take the better of the two results. So it is recommended to take the math portion of the test unless your ACT/SAT score places you into Calculus I (the highest possible placement).
MATH ACT Score 2224 / MATH SAT Score 530570, choose from:
MATH ACT Score: 2527 / MATH SAT Score 580630, choose from:
If you completed a state approved Quantitative transitional math course with a grade of C or better you may enroll in Math 112 or Math 113.
If you completed a state approved STEM transitional math course with a grade of C or better you may enroll in Math 112, 113, 149, 163 or 173.
Your advisor will help you choose the course that is right for you.
