Accuplacer testing is currently being offered for non-traditional students required to take learning support who would like the opportunity to exempt it. Students who fall into this category will be advised during the course registration process about their options to exempt. Accuplacer in this case is optional. If a student does not meet the minimum Accuplacer score requirement, they will need to take learning support along with the assigned course (MATH 1001/MATH 0997, MATH 1111/MATH 0999, ENGL 1101/ENGL 0999).

Examinees interested in taking the POST Accuplacer exam for employment purposes should first contact our office by calling 678-839-6435 or emailing testwest@westga.edu to schedule an appointment.
