COMPASS Placement Testing

COMPASS is a computerized exam used to determine your skill level in reading, English, and math to place students in appropriate classes. Find out if you need to take COMPASS.

COMPASS is by appointment only. Contact Larry Tutt, HCC Testing Coordinator, at 270-831-9783 for more information. You can also Cary Conley at 270-831-9610. You may also fax student copies of test scores to the coordinator at 270-831-9612, though official ACT scores will need to be on file in the Admissions Office.
