This important placement test measures your math, reading, and writing abilities. An ACT COMPASS placement score is a mandatory prerequisite for math and English courses, as well as several other programs and classes. See
Individuals Required to Take Test to learn more about these requirements. Without the ACT COMPASS test, you may be unable to register for your classes.
