If a student needs to re-test in one or more sections of the ACCUPLACER beyond their first attempt, they shall be assessed a re-test fee of $25 for each re-test session, regardless of the number of sections taken during that re-test session.
The highest of all active (non-expired) test scores shall be used to determine a student's final placement.
Exemptions: Students are exempt from paying re-test fees as long as their previous test scores for the sections they are re-testing in are expired. Test scores expire two (2) years from the date the test was last taken.
Additional Information: Current and archived (expired) ACCUPLACER scores may be used for placement into Math or English courses.
