Brush up on your skills!

On the day you take the Accuplacer assessment:

The higher you score, the fewer classes you'll have to take, which will save you time and money in the long run.

  • Allot 3 hours to take the test.
  • Bring a photo ID and your student number (C#)
  • Cell phones and pagers must be turned off and put away
  • Children are not permitted
  • Calculators are not permitted
  • Prospective students with a documented disability should contact Disability Support Services for accommodations on the assessment.
  • Each student will receive an individual report with their assessment scores and course placement information. Any questions about course placements should be directed towards your advisor.

To help students maximize their chances of being placed directly into their chosen program path, Ivy Tech Community College has developed a resource called Ivy Prep. Ivy Prep is designed to make it more likely you'll perform well on the Accuplacer assessment, whether you're taking it for the first time or trying to improve.
