Placement testing is required for students without recent (within the last three years) ACT or SAT scores. The results of the Accuplacer test help place students in appropriate level courses. Accuplacer scores from other institutions may be submitted if they are from the same battery of tests used by Donnelly College and the scores are no more than three years old. Placement testing is free for prospective students; students may re-test in one or more areas for a $15 fee.
The table below shows English and math placements based on test scores:
Accuplacer Study App This is the best guide available for Accuplacer testing preparation. Students need to create a user profile and log on. When asked to “Select the application you would like to view and then take the appropriate practice test”, select “Next-Generation Practice Tests”.
When selecting a test to practice, select Reading, Writing, and Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics (QRAS). These are the three tests administered at Donnelly.
We recommend completing the Learn as You Go section first. This section indicates if answers are correct or incorrect and gives an explanation.
