Placement Tests

Most new students and some returning students will need to take an Accuplacer Placement test before they register for classes. The computerized assessment determines proper course placement to help ensure student academic success. The test measures competency in the basic skill areas of reading, writing (grammar), and numerical skills. These tests are not graded; the score is used solely to assist the student in selecting appropriate courses. You will need to provide a University of Alaska student ID number to take the test.  New students can create a student account by going to UAOnline and applying for admission or filling out a Request Information (Prospective Student) form. 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. There is a $15 fee that must be paid prior to your placement testing. The placement assessment is UNTIMED. Plan for two hours; some students require more time, some less.
