Prairie View A&M University will use the electronic ACCUPLACER as the campus assessment tool for TSI. Before students are allowed to enroll at PVAMU they must have valid documentation on file for an exemption or they must have taken an appropriate placement test prior to enrolling in any college level classes.
You must have Prairie View A&M University listed to access your electronic THEA scores. COMPASS, THEA, ASSET or ACCUPLACER scores not given by this institution are only accepted when validated by the sending institution. The fax number for students to give the test supervisor is:

Re: Test Scores
It is the student’s responsibility to verify that an institution administering the THEA, COMPASS, ACCUPLACER or ASSET test will be able to validate those scores on an official transcript or via fax; otherwise the student will need to take an alternate placement exam on campus. Be advised that some institutions will only validate COMPASS, ACCUPLACER OR ASSET scores if the student enrolls in classes at that particular institution.
We (PVAMU) administer the ACCUPLACER. Please call our office at 936-261-3630 if you have any inquiries regarding remote testing.
If you have AP scores that need to be added to your transcripts, please note that we DO NOT accept copies from students. We only accept the score reports from the College Board. If you did not request to have your AP scores sent to Prairie View, we do not have them. You will need to log into your College Board account and request that a copy is sent directly to us. Our school code is 6580.
