Your emailed confirmation is your receipt! You can also use this emailed confirmation as a temporary parking pass for the duration of your Accuplacer assessment. Just place it face up on your dash before you come up to check in. If it's not in your inbox don't forget to check the junk mail folder for your confirmation. There is a $20 non-refundable administrative fee associated with taking the Accuplacer test. Receipt is valid for 60 days. NO EXCEPTIONS! ALL testing services (testing, re-takes, scores/results) will require the following:

  1. A current government or school-issued Photo Identification
  2. Your SID or SSN  (Think you applied to OC a long time ago but don't remember your SID? Check here)
  3. Obtain a Visitor's Parking Pass from Campus Safety or the Welcome Kiosk and place face side up on your dashboard before taking your test. (If you did not reserve a session and pay online already)

No cell phones, calculators, electronics of any kind or personal belongings are allowed in the test lab! 

If you are paying with a voucher from L&I, Workfirst or another entity or if you have already paid in person and have your orange receipt please view the schedule online, determine the session you wish to attend and bring your receipt/voucher and photo ID up to our office (HSS-222) where we will get you tested as a walk in tester.

There is a minimum wait time of at least 48 hours between testing re-takes. Walk-ins are generally accepted between 9:00 and 1:45 M-TH. Make your payment at the cashier's office first.

Think you may be exempt?

If you think you may be exempt from taking the assessment because you have completed an intermediate algebra course or higher in college, complete and submit the math placement form. You may also be exempt from the English placement if you have qualifying AP scores or have completed a college level English composition 101 course.

If you've taken an Accuplacer assessment within the last two years you may request the institution to fax it to us at 360.475.7470 or email it to us at: accuplacerquestions@olympic.edu to see if it is of use to you here.

Placement scores are only valid for two years from date of testing regardless if you took your test with OC or at another institution.

Future applicants to the PSNS & IMF Apprentice Program should be prepared to meet the placement requirements for Olympic College's BSTEC 150 and Math 94. 

The Accuplacer Reading Comprehension test is required for application consideration for the Nursing Programs, regardless of previous higher education or degrees acquired.  There is no waiver or exception from the requirement to complete at least the Reading Comprehension portion of the Accuplacer for application to the Nursing Programs.  The results for the Accuplacer Reading Comprehension do not expire for entrance into the ADN/TADN & PN Programs.  If you plan on using the Accuplacer results for placement in an English/Math, the scores expire after two years.
