Attention Troy Campus Students: The information below is for TROY Online students Only and DOES NOT apply to those students who are taking their courses on a physical TROY campus (Troy, Montgomery, Dothan, or Phenix City). All on-campus students should contact the testing office at their home campus to schedule an appointment to take the placement exam. To reach the ACCUPLACER Testing Administrator for Alabama campuses, please contact 1 (334) 808 6241 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
ACCUPLACER English and Math placement tests are required before students can register for a Math course or English composition course unless a student has previously taken a transferable course at another institution.
Students may register for MTH 0096 (Pre Algebra) without placement testing.

|Course||ACT Score||SAT Score|
|20 - 29||510 - 710
|30 - 34||720 - 740
(World Lit I/II)
|35 - 36||750 - 800
(Finite Math or Pre-Calculus Alegbra)

|25||590 or higher|
Please complete the ACCUPLACER Registration Form. A representative from TROY Online will locate a proctor in your area that administers the ACCUPLACER Placement Exam and set you up to test there. You will receive an email from the Test Administrator that provides you with the information you need to schedule an appointment to take your exam.
Costs: Troy University pays the exam fee, but if you test at another college/university, a proctoring fee may be required. There is no proctoring fee required for testing at a TROY site.
