College Placement Exams

The COMPASS placement test is one of the most important tests you will take related to your admissions to Central Georgia Tech. The test does not determine if you get into Central Georgia Tech, however, it does determine if you qualify to take college-level courses or if you will be required to take support learning courses prior to starting your college-level coursework. COMPASS is not a pass-fail test, but is used for appropriate course placement to insure successful completion of your academic program goals. The COMPASS placement test is not timed, but generally takes 2-3 hours to complete.
