ACT/COMPASS scores are required for admission, but are used specifically for academic placement. Because these scores are only valid for three years, students with outdated scores should be retested.
For students under 21-years old, academic placement depends on the ACT subsection scores in English, Math, and Reading Comprehension. If a student’s scores are below an 18 in English, 19 in Math, or a 19 in Reading, he or she will be required to enroll into Learning Support classes.
Students 21 and older must take the COMPASS Placement Exam. To avoid having to take Learning Support classes, COMPASS students must have a minimum of a 77 in the English subsection, 38 in the Math subsection, and an 83 in the Reading subsection.
A full-time student is one who is enrolled for a minimum of twelve credit hours per semester.
