Home / Testing Center / Accuplacer Test


The ACCUPLACER test is offered for students seeking admission to GSW as University College Freshmen, Dual Enrollment students, and Non-Traditional Freshmen. University College and Non-Traditional students taking courses on-campus must meet the minimum required Admit Scores and may exempt learning support with the required Exit Scores, unless their program otherwise requires learning support. Dual Enrollment and online-only Freshmen applicants MUST meet the required Exit Scores to be admitted.

Students must submit an admission application to GSW before registering to take the ACCUPLACER test at GSW or registering to test using a remote testing option. Students may also request for ACCUPLACER scores to be submitted to the Office of Recruitment and Admissions from other approved institutions. If scores are submitted from another institution, scores submitted must include the exact ACCUPLACER sections listed below in order for the student to be able to be considered for admission, and the test must have been taken within the preceding 12 months.

Testing preparation materials can be found at Students must have a picture ID in order to test. 

The ACCUPLACER is offered weekly on GSW’s campus at no cost for prospective students who have applied to Georgia Southwestern.

Online or Remote ACCUPLACER Exam
Students may also take the ACCUPLACER using Examity, a secure online proctoring service that allows students to test from home, when it is most convenient (24/7/365). Students also may select a testing center near their home, rather than traveling to Americus to test. There is a $25 fee for using Examity. A remote testing center will also charge a fee that normally ranges from $15 to $30. The student is responsible for paying these fees to the appropriate testing service.
