(Updated November 1, 2016)

ACCUPLACER remote testing is available to incoming Kapi'olani Community College students currently residing outside the State of Hawai'i. Remote testing allows you to take the ACCUPLACER Math and WritePlacer placement test(s) at an approved testing center nearest you in the state in which you currently reside. Completing your placement test will allow you to complete orientation and register for classes before you arrive in Hawai'i - saving you time and allowing you to get the classes you want.

Students who want to take the ACCUPLACER placement test remotely must meet the following criteria:
