The Accuplacer is a placement test used at 2 year colleges. (Colleges such as St. Paul, Century and Inver Hills) This test is used to match you with classes you will be taking next year. The Accuplacer is required to be admitted into a 2 year college.
To take the Accuplacer, you can sign and take the test at Harding in the CCC. We offer the Accuplacer several times beginning in December. 2 year colleges also offer the test on their campus - usually several times per week.
