Disability Services - Request ACCUPLACER Accommodations

Steps to requesting ACCUPLACER accommodations

The ACCUPLACER is designed to measure your reading and mathematical skills and compare your readiness in those academic areas to the skills required in college courses. If your skills aren’t at the college level, you must start with a preparatory course designed to build your skills and help assure your success in college-level curriculum.

Some students with documented disabilities qualify for accommodations on the ACCUPLACER. If you would like to use accommodations, please request them by completing the following steps:

  1. Complete a Disability Services Application requesting needed accommodations. If you have questions regarding the application, contact the Counselor for Students with Disabilities (jjacobsonberg@sctcc.edu).
  2. Provide documentation of disability to the college. The documentation must be current, appropriate information that provides a diagnosis of the disability including assessment procedures and relevant test scores. The documentation must clearly substantiate the need for all of the student's specific accommodation requests and be signed by an appropriately licensed professional. See Disability Documentation Guidelines for more information. These documents are held in a confidential file in order to help us better meet your accommodations needs. 
  3. Return documentation and Disability Services Application form to: Judy Jacobson Berg, Counselor, SCTCC, 1540 Northway Drive, St. Cloud, MN 56303 or jjacobsonberg@sctcc.edu. (Note:  Though the application and documentation may be sent through email, this method is not guaranteed as a secure method of communication.)
  4. Schedule an appointment to meet with Judy Jacobson Berg to review your plan for utilizing appropriate accommodations in your classes and on the ACCUPLACER. Call 320.308.5089 voice, TTY users may use MN Relay at 711 to reach the campus to schedule an appointment. 
  5. Complete the ACCUPLACER accommodation request form.

Note, the ACCUPLACER is not a timed test, so there is no accommodation for extra time
