Accuplacer Testing

RUNNING START ACCUPLACER TESTING

TThe exam takes approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete.  A specific portion can be administered to the student for the same fee of $20. However, if the student only takes a portion of the exam and in the future needs the rest of the exam, there will be an additional charge.  We require the student to take the exam in one session.  The exam is untimed and the students are allowed the use of a calculator.

Prior to beginning testing, the Running Start Coordinator will collect the fee from the student.  This is payable by check, cash, or money order.  Please contact Kalene Barney, Running Start Coordinator, at 603-366-5272 to schedule a proctored exam.
