Learning Support Program

University Advisement Center



The ACCUPLACER test is a computerized test and is not timed.


  • Students who wish to challenge their placement in Learning Support may do so by taking the ACCUPLACER test prior to the beginning of the term.  Students who have previously enrolled in a Learning Support course and failed to complete the requirements may not challenge Learning Support placement.  Students who have previously enrolled in a Developmental Studies Program course and  failed to complete the course may not  challenge their placement by taking the ACCUPLACER test.  A $30.00 non-refundable fee is charged for the challenge.  This fee must be paid the day of the test.  Prior to testing, students must contact the University Advisement Center to schedule  a date and time for the test.  Placement may only be challenged once.


  • Photo ID required on the day of the test.  Only calculators supplied by the Testing Center may be used for the Mathematics test.
  • Students who are required to take the ACCUPLACER test for initial placement in Learning Support courses are not required to pay the $30.00 fee.


Following are the cut-off scores that need to be met in order to be exempt from Learning Support classes:

Reading - 250
English - 250
Math - 250

If you have questions or need assistance in scheduling, please contact the University Advisement Center at 423 439-5244 or email us at  (located in the ARC, 2nd Level of the D.P. Culp Center).
