ACCUPLACER is an integrated system of computer-adaptive assessments designed to evaluate students’ skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. For over 30 years, ACCUPLACER has been used successfully to assess student preparedness for introductory credit-bearing college courses. ACCUPLACER delivers immediate and precise results, offering both placement and diagnostic tests, to support intervention and help answer the challenges of accurate placement and remediation. Note: The College Board recommends two weeks (10 business days) between taking the Accuplacer. ASU-Newport will support and follow this recommendation. Any exceptions must be approved by ASU-Newport's Coordinator of Testing Services.

Distance Education Proctoring Services (DEPS) Processes

ASUN Testing Services serves as a test center for students taking courses online or through correspondence Distance Education Programs. This service is provided to non-ASUN students.
Proctoring services are available by appointment only, during our regular hours of operation.
Please call the Testing Center for an appointment.
Fee: $25 per exam
The $25 fee is due on exam day. If, after testing, examinees need to have exam “overnighted” back to the correspondence university, we must know upon arrival, so we may complete the paperwork while examinees are testing.
