All full-time and part-time program students attending FVTC are required to complete all four ACCUPLACER evaluations prior to course registration.
A non-refundable fee of $15 is charged for individuals scheduling ACCUPLACER (including re-tests). The fee must be paid prior to testing. If you do not attend the testing session class, you must drop it at
least one business day before you test, or you can call 920-735-5645 to
inform Enrollment Services that you want to drop the testing session
class. If you do not drop or call, you will be billed even if you do not
test. Individuals will be asked to present a copy of the receipt AND a current photo ID to Assessment Center staff at the check-in point in the assessment center. The name on the photo ID you present must match the name you are registered as on the roster at check-in. Any changes must be made at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled session. All students must be checked in prior to their scheduled session start time.
