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, 1985. It assesses your college readiness skills in reading, writing and math. Outside calculators are allowed on the math test. Please go to www.actstudent.org/faq/calculator to verify that yours is permitted.
In order to COMPASS test, your online college admission or readmission application for the term has to be processed and your need for testing verified. Feel free to check on the status of your application by contacting the Admissions Office.
