Students who make a COMPASS score of 71 or above in English, 78 or above in reading, and 40 or above in mathematics will not be required to take Learning Support courses.
NOTE: The COMPASS Entrance Assessment is administered by the Admissions Office, while the COMPASS Exit Assessment is administered by Mrs. Lottie Scott, director of the Academic Assistance Program (Learning Support).
COMPASS Exit Testing
Students required to take Learning Support courses must pass both the course and the COMPASS Exit Assessment in each area (math, English, or reading) before they can go on to college credit courses in those areas.
