Proctored Placement Test

Placement Testing for Students who live 60+ miles from the Dayton Campus

If you have college-level credit from Sinclair or another school, including Advanced Placement, then first contact an Academic coach.  You may call 937-52-2990 or email

The Sinclair Community College Placement test has two parts, the ACCUPLACER© writing test and the ALEKS© math test.  If this is your first time attending college, you may need to complete both parts.

The writing and math tests may be completed at any Sinclair location.  However, if you live far from campus, you have the following options.

ACCUPLACER© Writing Test

Your ACCUPLACER© writing test must be taken either with the online proctoring service Examity© or with a ACCUPLACER© certified testing center.  You can search for certified testing centers in your area by using the ACCUPLACER© Test Center Locator on the ACCUPLACER© website.  The cost for using Examity© for your ACCUPLACER© writing test is $25.  If you choose to take this test with a certified testing center, the cost may vary.

ALEKS© Math Test

Your ALEKS© math test may be taken with the online proctoring service ProctorU© or with a proctor in your area.  Your proctor for ALEKS© does not have to be with a certified testing center, but will require approval by Sinclair.  Follow the steps for finding a proctor.  If you choose to take your ALEKS© math test with ProctorU©, the cost will be $19.  If you would rather find your own proctor for ALEKS©, be sure to ask the proctor if they charge a fee. 

However you choose to test, you will need to complete the Proctor Agreement Form.

Once you have submitted your Proctor Agreement Form, it is very important to check your email.
