As part of the registration process, you will be required to complete a placement test. These scores are used to determine appropriate course placement. At Blackhawk Technical College, we offer the Accuplacer assessment at no charge to first-time testers.

Accuplacer Retest Policy
- You may retest if you believe your score does not accurately reflect your abilities or skill level. There will be a fee charged for retesting.
- After reviewing the admission test scores, you may retest in each area ONCE using Accuplacer.
- If you completed the Accuplacer as part of the admissions process, you MUST wait 48 hours before retesting.
- If it has been three or more years since you last tested, we strongly encourage that you retest for more accurate course placement.
Course Placement Retest
Further retests require approval from the appropriate faculty and/or staff (dean, director).
