Plan on checking in between 12:15 pm and 12:55 pm at the Center for Technology, Innovation and Manufacturing (CTIM) building.  The program will begin promptly at 1:00 pm.

Registering for Classes
An important part of success in the classroom is making sure you are placed in classes that match your level of college readiness. Students who have not successfully completed college level English and math courses are required to take the Accuplacer, an academic skills assessment test.

College Readiness
A minimum Accuplacer score is needed to register for classes.  The scores are: Arithmetic – 34, Writing – 60, Reading Comprehension – 55

When should I take the Accuplacer?
You have the option of waiting to take the Accuplacer at START VU Jasper, but we encourage you to take the test early to quicken the registration process. Check out the START VU Jasper Schedule A listed below for students who take the test in advance.  If you have already successfully completed testing, no further action is required.

How do I arrange for Accuplacer testing?
Students wishing to take the Accuplacer in advance of their START VU Jasper day should make plans with the Jasper Campus Administration Office.

Testing is administered on Tuesdays at 9:00 am and Thursdays at 1:30 pm. Please call 812.482.3030 to schedule your Accuplacer placement test if you plan on takng the test in advance of your Start VU Jasper day.

What if I have special needs or require accommodations for a disability?
