ACCUPLACER Placement Assessment

We want you to be successful in your classes, so you will need to take an academic placement assessment to determine the classes to start with at LTC. ACCUPLACER is the placement assessment that LTC administers. The assessment is taken on the computer. The test is NOT timed. It typically takes 1.5 to 2 hours. ACT scores are also accepted.

Before You Take the ACCUPLACER

You have several options to prepare for taking the ACCUPLACER test:

  • Study on your own, reviewing sample questions, the free Web-Based Study App, and online resources.
  • Call LTC Manitowoc at 920.683.2846 or LTC Sheboygan at 920.208.5888 to get started on instructor-aided skill building to prepare for the Accuplacer. Cost is $20/semester.

ACCUPLACER Has Two Platforms 

  • LTC programs - ACCUPLACER Next Generation 
  • Apprentices only - ACCUPLACER Classic

LTC Programs - ACCUPLACER Next Generation

The cost is $20. Retests are $10. Cash or check only.
