Pre-Enrollment Assessment

 

 


Course Placement 

All certificate, diploma, and degree-seeking students, and those enrolling in a math, reading, writing, or English Language Learner (ELL) course are required to take a pre-enrollment assessment (COMPASS, ASSET, or ACT) unless exempt based upon one of the following:

          1.  A student who has graduated with an associate or baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education.

          2.  A student who transfers to Central Community College from an accredited public, private, or independent institution of higher education and who has earned a "C" or better in a pre-requisite or comparable college-level course as determined by Central Community College, i.e., English Composition, College Algebra, a reading intensive course, etc.  Scores within the past three calendar years will be accepted.  Please note that CCC Nursing programs require that ALL students complete a pre-enrollment assessment.  In addition, new students at Central Community College should complete the ASSET/COMPASS prior to meeting with a campus adviser.

**Note:  Registration in CCC Math and English courses would require assessment testing if the math and english prerequisites have not been met.

Retest Procedure

Retesting is appropriate when there is reason to believe that a score obtained from previous testing does not accurately reflect the examinee's true level of knowledge or skill.  Typically retesting is appropriate in two situations: (1) when factors other than the examinee's ability are believed to have influenced the previous testing and/or (2) When the scores obtained from earlier testing are no longer believed to reflect the student's current ability.
