Basic Skill Competencies
Assessment provides information about your academic skills in reading, writing, and math. This information will be used to determine your acceptance, course selection, and registration.
You must receive a sub-score of 19 or greater in reading, math, and English. If any sub-score is below 19, you must take the COMPASS assessment in that area.
If you choose not to take the ACT, you must take the COMPASS assessment. The results of your COMPASS assessment will help us recommend appropriate classes for you.
