Please pay close attention to the following important information:


Fee Information

Students required to take ACCUPLACER for admission to the University will not be charged a testing fee the first time they test for admission purposes if they test on Clarksville Main Campus or Fort Campbell Campus. Students eligible to take an ACCUPLACER retest or placement test challenge will be charged a $20 fee at the time of their scheduled appointment.

Students who would like to take the ACCUPLACER assessment for a school or institution other than Austin Peay are required to pay a $20 fee at the time of their scheduled appointment.

ACCUPLACER Retest / Placement Challenge

Some students may be eligible to take the ACCUPLACER to challenge placement in a learning support, or 'enhanced' course.  Once you are admitted to the University you will only be able to challenge your placement in an 'enhanced course' one time.  PLEASE NOTE:  If your initial placement in an enhanced course was determined from a college transcript and not a placement test such as ACT, SAT or Accuplacer, you are ineligible to challenge the placement. Also, any student who has previously attempted the enhanced course or is enrolled in an enhanced course that is in progress is no longer eligible to challenge the placement in the course.

If your placements were determined from your high school coursework/GPA under the COVID-19 alternate admission requirements, you are eligible to challenge your placements one time. Please contact the Testing Center at (931) 221-6269 if you have questions.  If you are eligible, please register for the exam online using the link at the top of the page. See Fee Information above.

Test Dates / Times

Please see Testing Schedule to view the current schedule of test dates and times. Please Note: Seating availability is limited, so examinees should schedule in advance.

Evening ACCUPLACER Testing on Main Campus:

Once a month, the Testing Center will administer an evening session of the ACCUPLACER assessment at the Clarksville Campus Testing Center. Evening sessions are scheduled to begin by 5:30 p.m. and end by 8:00 pm. Evening sessions will only be held on the evening dates listed on the Testing Schedule. To access the Ellington Building, examinees must enter through the front center door that faces Drane Street. The doors to the Ellington Building will lock after normal business hours, so it is critical that examinees arrive on time. If an examinee is late and the doors are locked, the examinee must reschedule. 


During peak times on the Clarksville Campus, parking availability in the area around the Ellington Building can be limited. To obtain a parking permit, go to parking, and obtain the permit via the guest login. If you experience difficulties with the parking portal, you may secure a pass in the lobby of Ellington at the main desk the day of testing.
