Retesting Policy

Retesting may be appropriate if there is reason to believe that a score obtained from previous testing does not accurately reflect your current level of knowledge (i.e., you weren't feeling well on test day,  you've been working on your skills since testing, etc.). You must wait 3 months before retesting.


Score Expiration Policy:

Students with SAT, ACT or Accuplacer scores older than one year should register to take the Accuplacer for a more accurate math course placement.
