Cowley College uses the Accuplacer test for placement testing. There are three sections: math, reading and writing. The test is not timed (average time per test is 45 minutes). Practice tests, sample questions and test-taking tips can be found on the Accuplacer website.
Before testing, you must apply at cowley.edu/apply to receive a Cowley College ID. Students will be charged a $25 proctoring fee if scores are to be sent to another institution.
PLEASE NOTE, A VALID PHOTO ID IS REQUIRED FOR ALL TESTING.

The Accuplacer placement tests can be taken at a local testing center near you. You will need to contact a Cowley College admissions representative to coordinate with the testing center of your choice so a voucher can be created. If there aren’t any available testing centers within reason, the test can be administered and proctored online, via zoom, for a small fee.
