Assessment Testing (Accuplacer)
Prior to scheduling your Accuplacer test, you must apply and be accepted to Ridgewater College.APPLY HERE
Once you receive your acceptance letter with the required student ID number, please schedule your appointment using the link to your campus below.
Initial assessment tests are free for Ridgewater College students or Minnesota State students (must obtain a voucher from your school). There is a $10 fee for students who are retaking any part of the assessment test if the student’s scores are still valid. Students are allowed to retest once within the period that the scores are valid (two calendar years for mathematics and three calendar years for reading comprehension).
There is a $25 fee for students who take the assessment test at Ridgewater College and transfer their scores to a non-Minnesota state college or university.
See the Accuplacer test schedule.
Students taking the Accuplacer will need to bring a photo ID at the time of the exam. Late policy: if the student is more than 15 minutes late to the scheduled appointment time, the student will be required to reschedule.
Tests and Fees
Testing fees cover test administration as well as other costs associated with printing, mailing, or faxing exams back to institutions. Fees must be paid prior to the exam. Students must provide a receipt from the Ridgewater College Business Office verifying fee payment.
Students taking the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) test must pay an administration fee of $20 (payable to Ridgewater College). This is in addition to the fee that is paid directly to CLEP through the CLEP website. This administration fee must be paid prior to testing, and students must provide a receipt from the business office verifying payment to the test proctor.
Students taking the CLEP test must make an appointment at the testing center they wish to test at.
We are not offering distance proctoring at this time.
