The Testing Center will be closed the week of March 13th for spring break and reopen on March 20th. 

Here's where you can find information on the tests that MAC offers.

If you would like additional information, contact Tippi Seals at 573-518-2202 or Leslie Evans at 573-518-3841.


The Mineral Area College Testing Center follows CDC recommendations for the safety of the public and its employees. All test takers are encouraged to bring and wear face masks. The Testing Center will observe social distancing recommendations.  

The preferred test for placement at Mineral Area College is the ACT Exam, which is administered by local high schools. However, MAC also offers the Accuplacer examination for those students unable to complete the ACT prior to registration.
The Accuplacer Next Generation test is an untimed examination taken on computer in MAC’s Assessment Center (Room AS 115 - Check-in is in Room AS 117), as well as other satellite locations. You do not need computer skills to take the test; it is extremely user-friendly and is less stressful than traditional paper and pencil tests. The Accuplacer is designed to measure current skills in writing, reading and math; the results are used to select appropriate levels of the English and math courses you will take, as well as whether the reading requirement prerequisites are satisfied for a variety of MAC courses.

If you are unsatisfied with the results of your test and would like to retake the Accuplacer, you are welcome to take the test as many times as you wish in one or all of the three subject areas. However, we do suggest reviewing study materials for the subject area you are retaking prior to rescheduling.

The fee for the Accuplacer is $20 for all three test subject areas, $15 for two test subject areas, or $10 for one test subject area. You should arrive at least ten minutes prior to the start of the test and bring a picture ID (REQUIRED) along with the testing fee, which can be paid by cash or check, or credit card in our business office or if you schedule the test online. Please note if you use the online scheduler, you are not required to pay via credit card at the time of scheduling; you may bring in payment when you arrive for testing.

The placement scores are listed on the main MyMAC Testing page under "Course Placement Scores".
