What Is It?

The ACCUPLACER Test is an adavptive, untimed online test that evaluates a student’s skills in subject areas: reading, writing, and math.   ACCUPLACER is designed to help place students in to specific courses at the appropriate academic level according to their individual needs and basic knowledge.

 

How Do I Know If I Need to Take It?

If a student has completed a college-level Math and English class receiving a grade of "C" or higher or has the required SAT of ACT scores, then they are not required to take the placement test.  The methods of establishing a student's academic level are further outlined in the GMC Academic Catalog. 

Georgia Military College encourages students to prepare for testing prior to arrival for the the placement test.  Here are a few resources available to you:
