COMPASS testing is required for first-time degree-seeking students age 21 and older. It is also required for degree seeking students with college work who have not passed a college-level English or math course who started to college after Fall of 1985. It assesses your college readiness skills in reading, writing and math. Outside calculators are now allowed on the math test. Please go to www.actstudent.org/faq/calculator to verify that yours is permitted.
In order to Compass test, you must wait at least 3-5 business days after submitting your online college admissions or readmission application so it can be processed and your need for testing verified. Feel free to check on the status of your online application using the login and password you created when you applied for admission.
