Placement Testing for Non-UA Students Counseling & Testing Center

Testing Services at the University of Akron is an Accuplacer Remote Testing Site. We also proctor various placement tests for students enrolling at other universities.

For those interested in taking a placement test for a university other than The University of Akron, you must contact your university in advance so that they may register you for the test and send information to this office to administer your test. You may then contact the Counseling & Testing Center at 330-972-7084 to schedule. We are typically open Monday through Friday 8a-5p, and placement tests will be scheduled between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday to allow adequate time to finish prior to close of business. Please be aware we discontinue testing 15 minutes prior to close.

If you receive an email registration from your institution, please bring a copy of the registration. All examinees must show a valid photo ID, and pay non-refundable $25 fee to be admitted to take the test. Payment can be made with exact cash, credit, or check.

University of Akron students should contact Computer Based Assessment and Evaluation, located in 152 Shrank Hall North, for information about math, reading, and writing placement testing. Please call 330-972-6511 for more information.
