Placement Testing

For information about placement assessments, including details about math placement using SAT or ACT scores, go to the Placement Assessments website (link https://orientation.ua.edu/placement/index.php).

Students who decide they wish to take the math placement assessment instead of using SAT or ACT scores can request disability-related accommodations on the test.  Documentation supporting the need for accommodation must be submitted to ODS:

  • E-mail: ods@ua.edu
  • Fax: (205) 348-0804
  • Mail:
    Office of Disability Services
    Box 870185
    Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0185
  • Personal delivery: 1000 Houser Hall

After review of the documentation, an accommodations specialist will contact Testing Services (insert link https://testing.ua.edu/) to authorize testing accommodations, provided the documentation is sufficient.

Math assessments must be taken online at least one week prior to the student’s Bama Bound orientation session.

Please note: ODS will accept Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and/or 504 plans as documentation for placement test accommodations only.
