The score: You will see your score immediately after you complete your PPL Assessment (in a large circle in the middle of the page after you have completed the PPL Assessment).

Scores are loaded into UAccess daily at 5am, 2, 4, 6, 8pm Monday through Saturday and at 5am, 6pm, and 8pm on Sundays. However, scores are not finalized until the recorded testing session has been reviewed. 

You will not be able to register for classes until the score has been processed into the UA system. Scores can be used for registration into Math courses for one year only.  

What did I place into? Your score on the assessment is used for placement into MATH, lab science, and other courses. You can find the placement chart here to see the required scores. 

You can view your score:

1) In your Next Steps Center (incoming students only) - The Next Steps Center is only available through the first week of the student's first semester at UA.

2) In Uaccess:

   a. Go to Uaccess Student, Student Center.  

   b. Go to the Academic Record Tab

   c. Go to Transfer Credit. It may take more than 24 business hours to appear on your Transfer Credit Report. 


      d.  Scroll down the page to Test Credits.  Note that your placement scores may show as "Rejected" or "No rule".  These are still valid scores if they were taken within the last 12 months.  "Rejected" and "No rule" only refer to the fact that no credit was earned by the test. You can ignore the "Rejected" status.  You can ignore this status as it does not prevent registration if your test score is high enough and has not expired.
