Ready to get started toward your academic goals? The Assessment Center provides COMPASS testing for incoming students, Make-Up Exams for existing students, GED testing, Proctored Exams for online courses, and a variety of community related testing services. We're here to serve you!
Also, the national ACT exam can be taken in place of the COMPASS test to gain admission to the college. To be exempt from COMPASS, you must score a minimum of 18 in English, 20 in Reading, and 21 in Math on the ACT exam. To find out more about the ACT exam, check out the ACT Student website.

Once you have completed the application and pretest, you can contact us in the Assessment Center to schedule an appointment for your GED.
