Compass Test Locations

If you are looking for Compass Test locations, you should first inquire at the college that you are going to attend.

NOTE: The Compass Test was phased out by ACT at the end of 2016. Your college may now be using the Accuplacer or ACT Math tests instead.

Ask at the college’s testing and placement office to see whether you can take the Compass exam at the college.




Colleges in many locations allow students to take the Compass Test on a walk-in basis if they are going to apply to attend courses there.

In other locations, colleges may offer the Compass Test by making an appointment 2 or 3 days in advance.

If your college does not administer the Compass test, you may want to look for an internet remote testing site administered by ACT, Inc, the trademark owners of the Compass exam.

The official site had an interface that let you search for a location by clicking on a map or typing in the name of the city in which you would have liked to take the Compass exam.
