The level of your reading, writing, and math skills needs to be determined to place you in the appropriate classes. Several different methods, including previous college credit you've earned, SAT or ACT scores, or through an assessment tool called COMPASS, may be used to measure levels.
You can complete assessment in any of the following three ways:
|ACT or SAT Scores
||Have you already taken the ACT or SAT? Scores of 20 or higher on the math, reading, and English sections of the ACT, or 480 or higher on the math, reading, and English sections of the SAT can be accepted for your assessment if they were completed within the last three years.

|Previous college courses or Associate Degree
||Have you already earned college credits or an Associate Degree at another college or university? If so, submit your college transcripts to the Admissions Office. College level math and English classes, with a grade of “C” or higher, taken at another regionally, accredited institution, may be used to waive the COMPASS exam.
|If you do not have previous college credit or an ACT or SAT score that satisfies the assessment requirement, you will need to take the COMPASS assessment. Scores on the COMPASS will determine which English, reading, and math classes will be taken. You must meet certain scores to place into college-level classes. Learn more about COMPASS.
Brush up on your skills. The higher you score, the fewer classes you'll have to take, which will save you time and money in the long run. Click here for practice resources.
