Placement Testing

All entering students are assessed through a 3-level screening guideline process. Level 1 is ACT Placement: all students who have taken the ACT within the last 5 years must make sure their scores are on file with the Admissions Office (251-580-2111). Level-2 Screening: (a) If students did not take the ACT test, (b) if students’ scores are over 5 years old, or (c) if students’ scores do not meet guidelines, then the students must make sure that the Admissions Office has their official high school transcript. Level 2 screening is based upon high school GPA and course of study. Level 3 Screening: if students do not meet placement requirements pursuant to the new guidelines for Level 1 and Level 2 screenings, then they will need to schedule a date to take the ACCUPLACER test. There is no charge for the first time students take the ACCUPLACER test. However, there is a $25 retest fee if a student wishes to challenge their test. Students must schedule a retest date any time after 6 weeks following their original test. However, students are limited to take the test only twice during their tenure at Coastal Alabama. All placement test results are valid for five years from the original or re-test date.

Students can access practice questions and practice tests at this link. The test is not timed but cannot exceed 3 hours. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED ON ALL CAMPUSES FOR THE ACCUPLACER.
