The University System of Georgia requires ACCUPLACER Next Generation testing for admission and placement of nontraditional applicants. Nontraditional applicants are exempt from taking Math Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics, Reading Comprehension and WritePlacer if they have transfer credit for English I or from taking Elementary Algebra if they have transfer credit for college algebra or its equivalent.
The testing sessions below are for Clayton State University nontraditional applicants, current students' placement testing, students testing remotely from other schools, and POST candidates. Testing is done at the East Entrance of Clayton State, 5823 Trammell Road, Morrow, GA 30260, in Arbor Hall, Room 121. View the map for directions.
We strongly recommend that future Clayton State students prepare before testing, particularly in algebra. Minimum scores are required for admission. The official ACCUPLACER preparation website. Also see the section below on "Preparing."
Admitted students may take ACCUPLACER Elementary Algebra as an appeal to be placed into MATH 1101 or 1111 without remediation. Admitted students may also take ACCUPLACER College-Level Math as an appeal to start in a higher-level mathematics course than MATH 1101 or 1111. See your advisor before scheduling.
No calculators are allowed except those provided on the ACCUPLACER screen. The fee is $20 for Clayton State University and POST testing and retesting; $30 for all remote testing.
Please schedule your exam by calling the Testing Center at (678) 466-4495 at least a week in advance.
The following dates are added for Clayton State University students who have been accepted for the Fall 2019 semester, but want to test to attain a higher score for more advanced placement or to exempt co-requisite classes; These dates are also for POST testing for law enforcement.
We strongly recommend that you prepare for your test so that your scores will reflect your true level of ability--especially if you have been out of school for a few years. Our students recommended these sites for preparation: Purple Math, Test Preview, or Khan Academy, and you may want to search the web for additional sites.
