Placement Testing

If you are a new student entering Clark State for the first time, you may be required to take the ACCUPLACER placement test. The ACCUPLACER placement test will assess your skill levels in reading, writing and mathematics based on your major at Clark State. The initial ACCUPLACER placement test is free. A $15 fee will be charged for a retest. Most often, placement test scores will remain valid for three years.

If you have ACT, SAT scores within the past three years, or transcripts form high school (3 years) or another college, you may be excused from parts of the placement test. Please contact a Success Coach to learn more about your options. Click on the “calendly” link below the Success Coach’s name who corresponds with your location/major.
