What is the Placement Test?

Before taking the COMPASS, or ASSET, Placement Test, you are required to attend The Start Right Experience. The Start Right Experience is offered to help you learn more about the Placement Test and how to prepare for this test. It is offered in the following capacity in your Student Information Center: WaveNet Central and online at

After participating, you are cleared to begin preparing for the Placement Test using the resources to the right, and then schedule and take the COMPASS. In the admissions office area, your New Student Enrollment Advisor uses your COMPASS Placement test scores to help place you in appropriate courses. Should you wish to re-take the COMPASS after testing into MAT 032, MAT 155, ENG032, or ENG 100, please ask your Advisor or WNC staff about the Placement Test Independent Study Program.
