Unlike four-year colleges and universities that require standardized test scores for admissions, two-year colleges usually don't require them. You just fill out the required paperwork to enroll.
But, these same two-year schools often use ACT Compass tests to gauge your English and math skills. Typically, you take the Compass test in the campus testing center before the start of the semester. Your score determines the level of English and math classes in which you can enroll. With high Compass scores, you may place out of freshman English and math. With low scores, you may be required to take remedial classes to catch up.
The ACT Compass offers untimed, computer-adaptive tests in reading, writing, math, writing essay, and English as a Second Language (ESL).
