Taking the Test
No Time Limit
Multiple-choice ACCUPLACER tests are untimed, so you work at a pace that’s comfortable for you.
No Appointment Necessary
Students may take ACCUPLACER tests on a walk-in basis (first-come, first-served) on Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. when campus offices are open.
The first test in each subject is free for UNM-Los Alamos students and prospective students, whereas a repeat placement test within a year costs $15.00, payable by cash, check, or credit card.
If you have a documented disability, please contact the Test Site Manager at 505-662-0332 to discuss available test accommodations.
What to Bring on Test Day
Bring a photo ID and your UNM student ID number (or a Social Security Number or New Mexico high school ID number) to the testing center in the Office of Student Services.
In addition, you will be asked to surrender your cell phone while you are testing, or you can choose to leave it at home.
Calculators are provided within the online test environment, so you do not need to bring a calculator to the testing center.
Remote testing for other colleges is possible. Please call 505.662.5919 to make arrangements.
