University System of Georgia Requirement:

If you meet admission requirements as a non-traditional student based on your academic record and are required to take the ACCUPLACER Exam, the results of your exam determine your eligibility to enroll at Kennesaw State University.

You will receive communication by email if you are required to take the ACCUPLACER Exam. As KSU transitions from offering the COMPASS Exam to the ACCUPLACER, you may still see references to the COMPASS. Just apply those references to the ACCUPLACER. If you see that you are required to take the COMPASS, you are actually required to take the ACCUPLACER.

The ACCUPLACER Exam is given by KSU Testing Services and you can schedule your exam through their website ( Testing Services may be contacted at 470.578.4800 (Kennesaw Campus), 678.915.3982 (Marietta Campus) or at

The deadline for taking the ACCUPLACER is the third day of Drop/Add for your term of entry. However, it is recommended that you take the exam much earlier for a better orientation, advisement, and registration experience.

ACCUPLACER Exam scores received from other institutions must be less than one year old and will be considered on an individual basis for acceptability per University System of Georgia Board of Regents standards.
