UAA Accuplacer Assessment
Test can be taken at the UAA University Center or UAA Eagle River Campus. The fee is $15.00.
What is Accuplacer?
The Anchorage School District (ASD) has formed a partnership with the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) to assist students with planning for their future after high school graduation by offering seniors/juniors the chance to take UAA’s placement test called ACCUPLACER. Students who have not taken the SAT/ACT or who have not earned an appropriate score on the SAT/ACT to place into college level math and English courses are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. Many other colleges, technical/vocational schools, and internship programs also require this placement test to be sure students have the appropriate math, reading, and writing skills to succeed in their program.
