4. Take the Accuplacer Assessment or Submit Appropriate Test Scores

The Accuplacer Assessment is a placement test that can be taken in place of appropriate placement scores for necessary placement into Math or English course.  

Accuplacer is offered in the Academic Success Center on the Boaz campus Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. Students wishing to take it at the Arab Instructional Site should call 256-840-4116. 

ACT, SAT and High School Transcripts can be evaluated for Math and English placement. Please email studentservices@snead.edu to find out what type of placement is appropriate for you.  

Students interested in taking the Accuplacer online through Examity must have a computer that meets Examity/Accuplacer requirements for software, audio, and video. There is also a $25 fee for the online proctoring service. 

Students who would like to take the Accuplacer assessment in person may do so at the Testing Center located inside the Academic Success Center at the Boaz campus.  Testing is available Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. until 12 pm.  Students must bring a photo ID and adhere to any COVID-19 procedures that may be in place (i.e. wearing a mask, etc.).

Official documentation of successful completion of previous college level courses may exempt a student from needing placement.

All First Time Freshman applicants must ensure that the Office of Admissions at Snead State receives an official transcript documenting high school / GED graduation. 

It is the student’s responsibility to request this from his/her high school or GED office.
