At the start of your educational path you will be required to take placement tests in math reading, English, and computer literacy. If you have taken the ACT and/or SAT tests, you may not need to take some of the Compass Placement Tests. Find more information on the COMPASS Placement Tests here.
These placement tests are designed to help you be successful in school by placing you in the appropriate courses to meet your needs. Test preparation is strongly encouraged.
