ACCUPLACER Placement Testing

All Minnesota State Colleges administer ACCUPLACER tests as part of the enrollment and placement process. (Not all enrolling students are required to take the ACCUPLACER - check to see if you are exempt.)

Be sure to take this test very seriously. MSC Southeast has mandatory placement. These scores will place you in the appropriate level math and English courses. If you perform well on the test you are likely to save a great deal of time and money on your education! Be ready for the tests - see below for more information on preparing for the ACCUPLACER.
