    Class options at Washburn Tech

     

    Accuplacer Test Options:

     All tests will begin at 9:00am. Students will receive a pass out of class to come to the library for this. It takes approx. 1 - 1 1/2 hours to complete it, although it is not timed. 

     

    They also receive, about a week before, an email from me with instructions for accessing the practice test/sample question website.

     

     Thursday, Sept 19th

     

    Thursday, Oct. 3rd

     

    *will also be giving this on Oct. 16th for National Test Day*

     

    Thursday, Nov. 21

     

    Thursday, December 12th *this test date is tentative, depending on available seats at Tech at that time*

     

    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.......
