Application for Off-Campus ACCUPLACER Assessment

To request an off-campus ACCUPLACER assessment, you must be living outside the Vancouver Island University (Nanaimo, Duncan, Powell River) region.

Payment Information:

  • The fee for an off-campus ACCUPLACER is $65 ($50 for a rewrite).  Note: This fee is non-refundable.
  • Please pay the non-refundable ACCUPLACER Off-Campus testing fee by calling the VIU cashier’s desk (250-740-6236). 
  • Upon payment, you will be sent a voucher number to be used to book the test date.
  • If payment is not received within 1 month, you will need to re-submit your off-campus request. 
  • Please note: because the online proctor program (Examity) is external to VIU, there are 2 fees applicable when taking the ACCUPLACER off-campus:
    • The VIU Assessment Services fee ($65) 
    • The Examity online proctor fee (US$25, payable by credit card when you book the date/time) . 

IMPORTANT: You will need access to a computer with high speed internet and a web cam to complete the ACCUPLACER in your own home using the online proctoring system.

Follow the instructions provided to register for your online exam and to become comfortable with how the online proctoring program works.
