The Assessment Centers administer Compass Placement Tests and Compass Exit Tests.
Compass Placement Tests are given to newly admitted students. There are three parts of the test (English, Reading, Math). The GHC admissions office determines if a student is required to take the placement test . The admissions office will also determine which part(s) of the test the student should take. New admits register online for the test using the "Check Admissions Status" link on the GHC home page. After registering, the student can print out a confirmation/reminder of the scheduled testing date and time. Students should pay the $20 Compass Placement Test Fee at the business office prior to checking in at the testing room.
Compass Exit Tests are given to students who have successfully completed a required Learning Support course. Learning Support professors send an eligibility list to the assessment centers to use for check-in on testing date. Exits are usually given on or around Reading Day near the end of the semester. There is no charge for the Exit exam.
