Pennsylvania Highlands Community College has implemented a requirement for students wanting to take an English, Mathematics and some Science course(s) for college credit. A qualifying score on the Compass test is required for students planning to enroll in any English or Mathematics ACE course through Penn Highlands Community College.
Students must achieve a satisfactory score in the discipline to be able to register for a college-level course in Mathematics or English. Students scoring below satisfactory must enroll in college-preparatory courses in Mathematics, English or Reading.
Students are encouraged to prepare for placement testing by reviewing sample Compass questions at http://www.act.org/compass/tests/index.html
Students may be exempt from taking one or more Compass test if they submit current SAT Test Scores. SAT Test Scores must be within the last five years and will be evaluated by the following guidelines:
