MSMCS Admissions Assessments
The MSMCS requires two assessments: Accuplacer and ALEKS.. A student must meet the minimum requirement on either the Accuplacer and/or ALEKS to be considered eligible for enrollment.
- The Accuplacer benchmark score is 530. Accuplacer may be taken 2 times per semester with a proctor on the Mat-Su College Campus. You must pre-register for the Accuplacer.
- The ALEKS benchmark score is 30. ALEKS may be taken up to 5 times per school year with a proctor on the Mat-Su College Campus. Between each ALEKS assessment attempt, a student must complete a three-hour tutorial tailored specifically to the student after the assessment. You must pre-register for the ALEKS.
