COMPASS Placement Test

Who needs COMPASS?
Comprehensive Computer-Adaptive Testing System

The COMPASS test is given to DEGREE-SEEKING students who meet one or more of the following conditions:

  • Possess ACT/SAT scores over 3 years old
  • International Student.
  • A Walters State faculty member refers the student for testing.
  • The COMPASS test is given to non degree seeking students 21 years of age or older that are interested in registering for English or Mathematics course.

Transfer Students

Students must submit transcripts containing a passing grade in college-level English composition, algebra, and a reading-intensive course.

Students who do not transfer in passing grades in these college-level courses must take the secondary diagnostic exam in the appropriate academic area.

Non-TBR transcripts which contain coursework below college-level in English, math, and reading-intensive areas must be evaluated by the appropriate academic dean, per the WSCC transcript evaluator.

When to take COMPASS

For specific information regarding the COMPASS test,  please contact Andy Hall in the Walters State Counseling & Testing Center.
