Writing and Math Accuplacer Test
Purpose 
The Accuplacer brand Math Placement test is used by the University of Utah to identify the proper level of Math class for which a student should register. It also allows the professors to have a clear record of student achievement in mathematics, before entering a mathematics class at the university. 
Schedule 
At the orientation, new freshmen will take the math accuplacer test. 
Retakes 
Candidates must wait one complete week before retaking the Math Placement test. Please set up an advising appointment to discuss retakes. 
Materials to Bring 
Remember to be on time! 
Timing 
The Accuplacer is not timed by the online program. You are allowed to use maximum of two hours to finish the exam. 
Identification 
Photo Identification (drivers license, school I.D. card, passport, etc.) is required for admittance to the test. 
Calculators 
Calculators are not permitted. 
Structure 
The Accuplacer is a computerbased test, and this allows it to be adaptive to your particular skill level. For example, if you do well on the first questions, it may skip questions that may be too easy for you, and move directly on to a more difficult type of question. Thus, as part of the testing process, you may advance through three different tests:

Scores 
The score requirements for placement into a particular Math class are determined by the Math Department and are published in their Math Placement Guide: http://www.math.utah.edu/ugrad/mathplacementguide.pdf 
Printouts 
A score report printout will be available immediately after taking the test. However, the scores themselves are generally only uploaded into the University's system by the Admissions Office by the next business day. 
Preparation 
The Math Placement Test primarily covers Algebra, with a little Trigonometry. The following links, for example, lead to free practice tests and other study materials: University of Utah Math Department  Online Lectures and Notes 
FAQ about Accuplacer
A score report printout will be available immediately after taking the test. At the end of the test, you will get a copy of your results.
On the main campus, you would take what you are placed into, according to the Accuplacer test. However, at UAC, you will automatically be placed into Math 1030, even if your score is below that threshold.
Generally, No. The Accuplacer exam is a requirement for all students. However, there are certain exceptions which are outlined below if you click on the "Waived."
May I be waived?
Those who do not take the exam will NOT be able to register for a mathematics course in the following semester. This is the policy on our campus and this is not the first time you are being told this.
There are a few cases where students do not need to take Accuplacer:
 ACT Math score of 23 or SAT Math score of 540, you place into Math 1050 (College Algebra) without need of Accuplacer.
If you believe that you place out of a mathematics class completely, then obviously you do not have to take the exam. Students who place out of the course have one of the following:
 AP Calculus AB score of 3 or higher
 AP Calculus BC score of 3 or higher
 ACT Math score of 26 or higher
 SAT Math score of 640 or higher
