Due to COVID-19, Confirmation testing is now being offered through ZOOM. Please contact the Academic Assistance Center to schedule an appointment at 731-425-2614.
Test Location: Main Campus, Academic Assistance Center (Above the Library)
Cost: $5.00 per subject or part to confirm ACT or ACCUPLACER scores
(Note: All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable)
This series of tests is offered before each semester for students who wish to confirm their ACT or ACCUPLACER assessment in math, reading and/or writing. Students are encouraged to confirm their placement. However, you may confirm a Learning Support/Lab class only one time. If you earned a grade (F, PR, W) in a Learning Support/Lab class, you cannot retest for that class; you must re-take that class to remove the grade.
Past experience shows that students who prepare for the Confirmation test have a good chance of testing up a level. Students who do not prepare usually do not move up. Therefore, there is a mandatory one week waiting period between the ACCUPLACER and Confirmation test.
Learning Support/Lab: Students who tested into Learning Support/Lab may take a Confirmation test in an attempt to move into Learning Support or into college-level courses.
