ACCUPLACER is a placement examination provided by ACT. The ACCUPLACER assists MSUB with placing students in mathmatics, writing, and reading courses. It is one of several assessments used to provide placement. Students will default to the highest placement score in accordance with enrollment service guidelines.


Where should I schedule?


Students enrolling at MSUB or City College at MSUB take a ACCUPLACER test as part of their orientation at no charge. The placement results will be available at their follow-up session with an advisor. There is a fee if students wish to retake the ACCUPLACER in hopes of improving their scores.


How can I prepare for the ACCUPLACER?


There are many ACCUPLACER resources available. Practice tests are provided by ACT at the ACCUPLACER website.


In addition, future students looking to practice the writing portion using a "live" format may utilize this online resource.
