All entering full-time and matriculated part-time students are required to complete placement tests.
After admission, students will be notified about a time and place for testing in math, reading and writing. (Placement testing is available at all of our Accepted Student Days.)
Results from these Accuplacer tests are used to place students in first-semester math and English courses, where you will have the greatest opportunity to succeed. You will be able to review your placement test scores with an advisor when you meet to register for your first semester.
Math placement test scores are valid for two years and math tests will need to be re-taken if math courses are not taken during that period.
Accuplacer was designed to help you be successful in college. Your scores help your advisor to place you in courses that make the best use of your current skills and strengths. Once your academic needs are identified we can provide you with the support you need to be successful at SUNY Adirondack.
