Placement Testing

  • Math Classes – Students who want to take a math class must take a placement test to determine the math courses they are eligible for. Math placement is completed through ACCUPLACER exam scores. The cost for the ACCUPLACER exam is $20, walk-in only. Contact the University Testing Services at (208) 426-2762 or to learn more about the ACCUPLACER and the available test times. After taking the exam, please provide the test results with your application. University Testing Services is located in the Simplot Micron Academic Success Hub (SMASH); 2nd floor, room 213. For more information visit the Boise State Registrar’s Placement Exams web page.
  • English Classes – Students who want to enroll in an English class will need to complete “The Write Class” assessment. For more information about the Write Class, visit the English department’s English Placement Exams web page.
  • Other Classes – Some World Languages, Chemistry, Computer Science or other courses may also require placement. These placement tests are also given at the University Testing Services.


High school students participating in the On Campus option adhere to the same deadlines as regular University students. To view the academic calendar, payment deadlines and drop or withdrawal deadlines visit the Registrar’s Calendars and Deadlines web page
