Remote ACCUPLACER testing is available for any individual who either needs to utilize SOWELA’s Testing Center to take the ACCUPLACER exam for a different institution or an individual who plans on attending SOWELA but needs to utilize a different testing center to take the ACCUPLACER exam.

Please contact the institution that you are planning to attend prior to scheduling your remote ACCUPLACER exam. That institution will register you for their exam. A registration number will be generated and sent to you via the email you provided. This number is needed on test day and is required for test registration on SOWELA’s Website.

Any student planning to attend SOWELA but is unable to utilize SOWELA’s testing must first contact SOWELA’s Testing Center to schedule testing at a different institution.

Students who plan to attend a different institution can reserve a seat via the Pay Online and Schedule a Time to Take the Test link. Select ACCUPLACER – Main Campus or ACCUPLACER Remote then continue with the test registration.
