Placement Tests

All new students and returning students who haven’t taken a class in the last two years need to take an Accuplacer Placement test. The computerized placement assessment determines proper course placement to help ensure student academic success. The test measures competency in the basic skill areas of reading, writing, and numerical skills. These tests are not graded; the score is used solely to assist the student in selecting appropriate courses. Students who have taken classes in the University of Alaska system can look up their student ID number on UAOnline, or check with Student Services for assistance. You will also need your student ID number to pay the $15 testing fee prior to your placement testing. The placement assessment is UNTIMED. Plan for two hours; some students require more time, some less.   

Student IDs and Fees for the Placement Test

Students taking placement tests must provide their University of Alaska student ID number, proof of payment and picture identification.
