Entry-Level Assessment

The ACT is the primary entry-level assessment tool at Connors State College for recent high school graduates and non-graduates age 20 and younger. ACT subscores of 19 are required in English, reading, mathematics and science for enrollment in college level courses. Adult students (age 21 and older) and recent high school graduates and non-graduates age 20 and younger whose ACT subscores are less than State Regents’ entrance requirements (subscores of 19 in all subject areas) will be required to take the COMPASS entry-level assessment. First-time college students may re-take all or portions of the COMPASS one time for a fee of $10 per test unit and only after discussion with the Registrar’s Office in consultation with the Office of the Vice-President for Academic Services.

No additional entry-level assessment testing is permitted after the student enrolls and on or after the first day of the semester. For example, a student who has completed or is attending a zero-level math class is no longer eligible to take the math placement test. The same process applies to English, reading, and science proficiency testing.

All first-time students and transfer students with fewer than twenty-four (24) college credit hours seeking admission or re-admission into degree programs are required to participate in entry-level assessment. The purpose of assessment is to assist faculty and admissions personnel to make enrollment decisions that will help students attain their academic goals. Assessment is required in four subject areas: English, mathematics, reading and science.

All students are required to provide photo IDs to take any COMPASS test.
