A student may elect to retest for one or more course placements by retaking the placement test(s) for the subject areas (math, reading or writing) they choose. Before retaking the tests, it is highly recommended that all students review the Placement Test Preparation page to complete Accuplacer practice tests. Retests are given only under the following conditions.
Complete a Retake Eligibility Approval form from Testing Services.
Pay the $10 per test section (math, writing, reading) online or in-person at the Cashier’s Office in D 101.
Students taking the test for the third time (or more) must first get approval from the department:
Any further appeal must be made in writing to the Coordinator of Math Development (for math placement) or the Coordinator of the English Language Program (for Reading and Writing placement) and must be made at least one week before classes start for the semester.
