Preparing for Accuplacer will help you find success, but Accuplacer is NOT a pass-fail test. It is a college placement test. You cannot fail. The test is simply designed to help you and the college determine whether you are ready to immediately start the program you have chosen, or need some additional preparation first. The placement measures mathematics, reading, and writing are designed to assist York Tech in placing students into appropriate courses. There are potentially five possible placement scores: one each in writing and reading, and up to three in mathematics.
*You will need your picture ID when you come to take the test.
If you have a documented disability and would like to request special accommodations for the placement test, you need to speak with someone in the Special Resources Office (SRO) BEFORE YOU TAKE THE TEST. The SRO is located in the Student Services Building (803) 325-2896.
A first retest may be taken at any time. Additional tests require a 6 month waiting period.
