The UNM Testing Center uses ACCUPLACER, a computer adaptive test for students who have never taken an ACT exam or students who want to challenge their ACT/SAT score(s). Results with placement recommendations are printed immediately after completion of the test(s). Students may take a math, reading and/or writing placement exams to "place out" of foundational level classes. These tests are for placement only, not for course credits. The mathematics and English departments use the highest scores for placement. Contact the Testing Center at 277-5346 for additional information.
