Voucher request and other arrangements

Students may take the required Accuplacer placement tests at another institution if they have difficulty coming to our testing sessions. There are two options as described below. 

Voucher

A student can request a voucher to take the required tests in an institution that uses the voucher system. Up until now, most Minnesota State institutions use the voucher system, but not all.

It is students' responsibility to check with the institution they intend to go if they accept vouchers both in state and out of state, even out of country. After students complete their research, they need to provide the following information to request a voucher from us by providing the following information to Placement.Assessment@metrostate.edu.

  • Your choice of institution where you intend to take the tests, including State and institution Name
  • Your Metropolitan State University student (8 digits) ID number
  • Your first and last name, exactly the same as they are in the Student Records System
  • Your date of birth
  • Your home address
  • Your email address
  • Your phone number(s)
  • Your email address
  • Your ethnicity or ""I choose not to answer""
  • Your gender or ""I choose not to answer""
  • What test(s) you need to take

As soon as a voucher is successfully created, students will receive a voucher notice directly from Accuplacer with all information they need.

Online Testing with Examity

In addition to the Voucher option, students can choose to take ACCUPLACER tests with Examity.  It is a secure online proctoring service that allows students to take their ACCUPLACER tests when it is most convenient (24/7/365), to help them perform at their highest level of ability.  Students may visit their website at http://www.examity.com/accuplacer or contact 678-276-8204 for more information.

Fees or Charges:  There is no fee or charge for Metropolitan State University students to take the Accuplacer tests with a MN State institution.  However, they are responsible for options.  

Consent for Release

If a student needs to send his or her Accuplacer test results to a third party out of the MN State System, the student needs to email Placement.Assessment@metrostate.edu for further information.
