If you're like most students, you hope to excel academically in college. Here's a tip that can help you reach that goal: Schedule only those classes for which you are adequately prepared. This is particularly true for English, math, and reading classes. To ensure that you are correctly placed in these subject areas, the College administers the COMPASS Placement Test. This assessment is used to identify students' skill levels in English, reading, and math. Once skill levels are determined, students can be directed to the appropriate courses in each of these disciplines.
The COMPASS Placement Test will be taken by students prior to scheduling classes. It is required for those students who have no ACT scores or whose ACT scores are not sufficient to determine placement in these subject areas. Students required to take the placement test will be notified by the Office of Admissions once they have been admitted to the College.
