Next-Generation ACCUPLACER

Southeast Technical College is committed to providing students with opportunities for successful academic experiences, and we know student academic achievement is directly related to proper initial course placement. The Next-Generation ACCUPLACER Test assists in proper course placement for English and math.

Southeast Tech offers the Reading and Writing sections of the Next-Generation ACCUPLACER for English course placement and the Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra and Statistics (QAS) section of the Next-Generation ACCUPLACER test for math course placement.


Applicants are strongly encouraged to prepare for this exam. Even if you scored high on the ACT or other standardized tests, do not assume you are prepared for the Next-Generation ACCUPLACER.
