  1. There is a $10 fee for taking an Accuplacer test. Students need to pay for the Accuplacer test on MyNEVADA before arriving at the testing site.

  2. If you are taking the test the next day or later: MyNEVADA will email students a receipt of the transaction that evening.  Students need to bring this receipt to the testing site when they come in to take the test. 

    If you are taking the test the same day:  Either print a screen shot of your transaction or show the reference number to the front desk. 

  3. Students need to bring a photo ID, their NSHE ID number and a pencil or pen for doing work. A calculator is unnecessary and not allowed. Accuplacer provides an on-screen calculator when needed.
