Tests are offered Monday through Friday at 8:30 a.m. by appointment based on room and staff availability.

Appointments can be made by calling 231-591-3628 during business hours or by coming to our office: Institutional Research & Testing, Timme Center for Student Services (CSS 313D). Our business hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. Please note that we do not give tests on weekends and we close when the University closes.

Accuplacer exams cost $2.25 for each test unit. However, Write Placer which is the test to be placed into English uses two units; therefore, that exam costs $4.50.

Accuplacer tests can be taken in our office, remotely or closer to home. Students should contact (231) 591-3628 to schedule or set up their appointment.

An academic advisor or faculty member has the option to recommend the test(s). There is a form that can be filled out by clicking here. If a Referral Form is not filled out, it is the student's responsibility to know what test(s) they need or they will be given all Accuplacer exams.

Sample questions can be found at Accuplacer.

We provide scratch paper and a pencil. There is a calculator available within the software when the student begins the test, if it is allowed.

On test day, students should arrive at the Timme Center for Student Services at 8:25am and take the elevator to the third floor where a receptionist can direct them to the testing center.

Students MUST have a valid, current picture ID (driver's license, student ID, passport, or state ID).
