ACCUPLACER (Skills Assessment)

The ACCUPLACER evaluation measures students' academic skill level in the areas of reading comprehension, sentence skills, arithmetic, and elementary algebra.  For FVTC admissions purposes, ACCUPLACER scores must not be more than three years old.

All full-time and part-time program students attending FVTC are required to complete all four ACCUPLACER evaluations prior to course registration.

A non-refundable fee of $15 is charged for individuals scheduling ACCUPLACER (including re-tests).  The fee must be paid prior to testing.  If you do not attend the testing session class, you must drop it at least one business day before you test, or you can call 920-735-5645 to inform Enrollment Services that you want to drop the testing session class. If you do not drop or call, you will be billed even if you do not test. Individuals will be asked to present a copy of the receipt AND a current photo ID to Assessment Center staff at the check-in point in the assessment center. The name on the photo ID you present must match the name you are registered as on the roster at check-in. Any changes must be made at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled session. All students must be checked in prior to their scheduled session start time. Sorry, late arrivals cannot be accommodated.

NOTE: You may submit a Post-Secondary transcript to Enrollment Services for evaluation to determine if your Skills Assessment requirement can be waived.
