Accuplacer Test Options:

Testing options/locations TBD.

Students may also take their Accuplacer at Washburn Tech itself as well - they give it several times per week. It is still free to take it there for HS students. As we get closer to programs filling, this may be a better option for someone trying to get into a program before it completely fills up.......
