Registration for Academic Testing Center (make-up and waiver exams) or Accuplacer Placement Tests

Academic Testing Center Registration

  • Your instructor must first submit the make-up exam before you can make an appointment. 

  • If you do not see your make-up exam, please contact your instructor.

  • Please do not schedule an appointment for a random class. 

  • Scheduling Instructions can be found here.

  • Visit our Metro State Webpage for information on offsite proctoring and additional information. 

Bring your Student ID Card or any official photo ID card with you to the exam to verify your identity.       

 

Accuplacer Placement Tests

  • You need to know what placement tests you need to take by checking your DARS or our Exemption Criteria, or your academic advisor.
  • If you are scheduling a retest, you should be aware that the maximum you are allowed to test is three times, which includes all test records in the Minnesota State records system. 
  • All test scores are valid for three calendar years. 
  • If you have tested 3 times, and none of your scores are valid, you may test one more time.

These tests are NOT timed.  But, 120 minutes are allocated for Math, Reading, and Writing tests; 90 minutes for either Math tests only, or Reading and Writing tests only, as required by the computer self-registration procedure.  This time allocation proves to be enough for over 90% plus test takers.  However, you should plan to start early on the test day if you think you need more than the allocated minutes.

Bring your Student ID Card or any official photo ID card with you to the exam to verify your identity.
