Take Placement Tests

Rio Salado degree programs require ACCUPLACER placement tests for English, reading and math. A placement test determines your academic level for appropriate course placement. If you are pursuing a degree you will need to take the placement tests prior to enrolling in classes.

Where do I take my test?


Military Base Location - If the proctor is at a military base; s/he must work at the Education Center. The proctor will be the Test Administrator or Test Control Officer at the installation (base, camp, Kaseme, COB, FOB) education center where you are stationed.
