Transfer students who do not have math and/or writing classes on their college transcript may need to take Accupulacer placement test(s). For advising purposes the transcripts can be unofficial, but Admissions will require official transcripts prior to the start of your first semester.

Please note that there is a fee ($7.50 or $15) associated with the Accuplacer test(s), pending on which test(s) are taken.
