ACCUPLACER Placement Exam

ACCUPLACER Placement Exam Testing Policy

Update 4/30/2020 - As of now, remote vouchers for the Accuplacer exam(s) will not be generated and any administration of the MGA Accuplacer is on hold for the remainder of Spring and Summer 2020 semesters. The platforms that we have been looking at do not meet the security requirements for transmission of confidential exam/student information.

Please continue to monitor this page for any updates regarding Accuplacer at Middle Georgia State University.

Accuplacer for Admissions: We suggest you reach out to the Admissions Office directly, as the criteria for acceptance has shifted due to campus closures and the Accuplacer is not required. We will begin offering Accuplacer as soon as MGA returns to normal on-campus operations or when a viable remote proctoring option becomes available.

Accuplacer for Employment : Accuplacer Scores for Employment exams will only be kept on file for one (1) year following the exam date. In order to request Accuplacer for Employment scores, please go to the Document and Forms page, fill out the Accuplacer Score Release Request, and send the completed form and receipt of payment for the $35.00 fee to

Accuplacer to Exempt Learning Support Courses: We will begin offering the Accuplacer as soon as MGA returns to normal on-campus operations, or when a viable remote proctoring option becomes available.

Retesting Information

Listed below are retesting guidelines for students entering MGA in the 2017 spring term or later.

  • The last date to retest is the last business day before the first day of class for the semester.
  • The retesting options are forfeited if a student attends any mandatory Learning Support classes after his/her entry term's Add/Drop date.
    • Students must wait 7 days between the testing attempts.
    • Students taking their initial ACCUPLACER test near the start of the next term may not have time for any retesting attempts.
  • Preparation is the key to passing the ACCUPLACER retest. Retaking the ACCUPLACER without preparation wastes your time, your money, and prevents other students from taking the test.

  • There is a $35.00 retesting fee — for one, two, or all ACCUPLACER subjects.

    • The retesting fee applies to all retesting sessions—those hosted at MGA or set up at a remote testing site.
