HiSET Test

The preferred test for placement at Mineral Area College is the ACT Exam,

which is administered in September, October, December, February, April and

June of each year (click ACT link at left for more details). However, MAC also

offers the Accuplacer examination for those students unable to complete the

ACT prior to registration.

The Accuplacer test is an untimed examination taken on computer in MAC’s

Assessment Center, as well as other satellite locations. You do not need
computer skills to take the test; it is extremely user-friendly and is less
stressful than traditional paper and pencil tests. The Accuplacer is designed
to measure current skills in writing, reading and math; the results are used
to select appropriate levels of the English and math courses you will take, as

well as whether the reading requirement prerequisites are satisfied for a

variety of MAC courses.

If you are unsatisfied with the results of your test and would like to retake
the Accuplacer, you are welcome to take the test as many times as you wish
in one or all of the three subject areas.
However, we do suggest reviewing

study materials for the subject area you are retaking prior to rescheduling.

The fee for the Accuplacer is $20 for all three test subject areas, $15 for two test subject areas, or $10 for one test subject area. You should arrive at least ten minutes prior to the start of the test and bring a picture ID (REQUIRED) along with the testing fee, which can be paid by cash or check, or credit card

in our business office or if you schedule the test online. Please note if you use

the online scheduler, you are not required to pay via credit card at the time of

scheduling; you may bring in payment when you arrive for testing.
