Step 2: Complete Placement Tests

  • Once both applications are complete,  now register to complete the placement tests. 

    Math Placement: The ALEKS test is conducted at King Tech High School after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 2:45 pm.  Tests must be started by 3 pm; otherwise, the appointment needs to be rescheduled.

    There is no cost to take the placement test.  Students need to schedule the ALEKS test at least eight business days from the date of completing the UAA application. This will allow time for a UAA to issue your student ID number.  The ID number is required for both placement tests.
