Some students may be exempt from parts of the COMPASS test under two conditions

Some students may be exempt from parts of the COMPASS test under two conditions:
• Students who have taken the ACT test within the past two years and scored 22 or higher in the individual English, Reading or Math tests do not have to take the corresponding COMPASS test:
ACT 22 or higher in English exempts you from the COMPASS writing test
ACT 22 or higher in Reading exempts you from the COMPASS reading test
ACT 22 or higher in Math exempts you from the COMPASS pre-algebra test, however you are required to take the COMPASS Algebra test.
• Students who have completed courses, or taken a placement test such as ASSET or COMPASS at another college or university may be exempt from portions of the COMPASS test. These students should first see an advisor or counselor before taking the COMPASS test. Documentation is required and must be reviewed by an advisor to determine which portions of the COMPASS test are needed for course placement. You will need to bring an unofficial copy of your college transcript or ASSET/COMPASS scores when you come to the Advising Center to see an advisor. Without documentation, students will be required to take the entire COMPASS test for course placement. Placement test scores from other colleges and universities that are not ASSET or COMPASS scores cannot be used for course placement at Black Hawk College.
