Exempting the COMPASS Placement Test
Applicants with high SAT or ACT scores may exempt COMPASS Placement testing if they do not have Required High School Curriculum (RHSC) deficiencies and have the following scores.
|Area||SAT Score since March 2016||SAT Score before March 2016||ACT Score|
|Math||SAT Math Section 480 or higher||SAT Math 440 or higher||ACT Math 18 or higher|
|English (Writing)||SAT Reading 26 or higher||SAT Verbal 480 or higher||ACT English 20 or higher|
