Accuplacer & Other Exams
May be required for students who do not have recent ACT or SAT scores to determine placement in courses

A standardized test score is required to place incoming students into the appropriate English and Reading courses. Accuplacer NextGen is an option for students without a standardized test score on file or would like to test out of a supplemental reading course or have expired exam scores. Should a student need to take a placement exam, they will be notified from the Office of Admissions and/or the College Readiness Staff in the Advising & Career Development Center. To review a list of all placement exams accepted at WKU, please visit the College Readiness Website. To learn more about Accuplacer and to schedule your exam, please click here.
