*ACCUPLACER may only be taken twice within a year. WSU Testing Centers are required to verify the number of ACCUPLACER exams taken. Because of this policy change, WSU will no longer accept ACCUPLACER tests taken at Davis Applied Technology Center or Ogden/Weber Applied Technology Center.

Starting August 25, 2014

ACCUPLACER math tests taken after August 24, 2014 will not be used for developmental math placement. ACCUPLACER math tests taken before August 25, 2014 will still be valid for two years from date of testing.

Placement in college level math courses will continue to use Accuplacer.

If you want to challenge your developmental math placement you can take the Math Mastery Exam.

English ACCUPLACER is still valid for English placement.


ACCUPLACER is a placement test that consists of Math, Reading Comprehension, and Sentence Skills.

Scores for ACCUPLACER tests taken after February 1st, 2013 expire two years from the first test date. 

Scores for ACCUPLACER tests taken before February 1st, 2013 expire one year from the last test date.

See description of ACCUPLACER Tests

When may I take ACCUPLACER?

The test is given up until 2 hours before the closing at that particular testing center. Please check the hours on this website. No appointment is necessary.

How do I get my test results?

Test results will be received immediately, although scores will not go on student records until the next business day.

Can I transfer my scores from another Institution?

WSU has a unique placement system, using ACCUPLACER, which is not compatible with other institutions.

Scores from other institutions are not accepted. You may request our version of ACCUPLACER to be given at institutions that are more than 50 miles from a WSU campus (see more below).

What do I do if I need to take ACCUPLACER from outside of the Ogden-Layton region?

Students who live more than 50 miles from WSU's Ogden or Davis campuses may request to take ACCUPLACER at another institution. We will set it up so that those results will be automatically downloaded onto our system. In compliance with WSU's policy on a 50 mile distance, we do not set up distance ACCUPLACER exams in Salt Lake County, Box Elder County, or most of Cache County. However, if you are south of the Utah County/Salt Lake County line or beyond the Idaho and Wyoming state borders, we will be glad to help you take the exam elsewhere.

Please follow the instructions by filling out the Distance ACCUPLACER Request Form

Weber State University Testing Department has the right to audit and investigate the validity of scores.
