ACCUPLACER measures preparedness in math, reading, and writing and places students in appropriate courses. The Math, Reading, and Writing tabs above contain course placement information based on test scores. You may also choose to take/retake ACCUPLACER to challenge your placement(s).

Please consult with your academic advisor to ensure proper course selection prior to registering for classes.

Taking ACCUPLACER in the TLC costs $20 and is paid online when you schedule an exam.  

If you want to take ACCUPLACER somewhere other than Tech, or you have scores from somewhere else, contact the tlc@tntech.edu

The TLC loads all official ACCUPLACER scores into the system for academic advisors to view.
