If a student chooses to take a Math or English course and does not have the qualifying ACT scores, the students must take the Accuplacer Placement Assessment. Students are strongly encouraged to study before testing.
For more information about preparing for the Accuplacer, visit Review for Accuplacer Placement Assessment. Shelton State also offers free Accuplacer Help Sessions. Other Accuplacer resources are available in the Accuplacer Student Portal.
