What is COMPASS?

COMPASS is a computerized assessment in reading, writing, and math that is part of the ASUMH admissions and registration process. Placement testing helps to identify what classes you should schedule your first quarter. Our goal is to ensure that your classes are at the right level for you - not too easy and unchallenging and not so difficult that you would feel overwhelmed.

For more information, contact the Testing Center (870) 508-6209.

Note: COMPASS is NOT a timed test

The Price for COMPASS is $20.00 to be paid at the cashier window on the 3rd floor of Roller Hall. Bring your receipt to the testing center at the time of your test.
