About ACCUPLACER® at Wilmington University
The College Board developed ACCUPLACER® Computerized Placement Tests (CPTs) to provide information about your level of skill in reading, writing, and mathematics. Wilmington University will use the English and math scores to prepare a student for success by determining a student’s readiness for the freshman-level requirements within his/her degree program. All students are expected to take both tests unless exempted due to the transfer of an equivalent math and/or English course or acceptable SAT scores. (See Placement Testing Exemptions for details.) Please check with the Office of Academic Advising or University Information Center if you are not sure which test(s) you need to take.
If you have any questions about a test item, you may write to:

Special Arrangements for Students with Disabilities
If you have a documented disability that would prevent you from taking the test under standard conditions, you may request accommodations through the Office of Disability Services. Accommodated testing is offered by appointment after appropriate documentation has been submitted and reviewed. No charge is made for these arrangements. Extended testing time is already provided for the test. A calculator is also provided during math testing; it appears when calculator use is appropriate. For details on arranging accommodations, please contact the Office of Disability Services.
