For information about testing at other sites, please contact the education institution where you plan to attend or http://www.ACT.org.
Testing is conducted in Matthews Hall 153 on campus only, during the morning of the first day of the Student Orientation and Registration [SOAR] sessions.
ACT scores [scores dated within three years of the first day of classes for the semester in which you plan to enroll] are used as the primary tool for course placement decisions. Check here for information on ACT Placement. If you wish to accept the placement determined by your ACT scores, you do not have to test with COMPASS. If you believe that you should be placed at a higher level than determined based upon your ACT scores, then you will need to test with COMPASS before you register for classes.
YOU MUST MAKE A TESTING APPOINTMENT. Seating is limited, so if you do not make an appointment you will have to wait until a later date to test. If you are required to take the COMPASS Test, you will NOT be allowed to register for classes until the test is completed.
The TESTING HOTLINE number is 931-372-3476. Operators are waiting [8am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday] to take your call for an appointment. The phone line is also on a phone-messaging service. If you use phone-messaging, please leave your name, phone number, T-number [TTU student ID number assigned by Admissions], and the date for which you wish to register.
You will be asked for the following information:
