COMPASS Placement Retesting Policy

Testing Deadlines:

COMPASS - 1st Attempt - Fall B-term
September 27, 2014

RETEST Compass - Fall B-term
September 29, 2014

Darton College allows one retest per area for applicants required to take the Placement test. Retesting is voluntary, costs $10 per area if taken at a Darton campus, and must be taken BEFORE meeting with an advisor to register for classes.

The Admissions Office determines which parts of the Placement test are required upon receipt of:

  • requested GED/high school and/or college transcripts
  • SAT/ACT scores if taken – not required
  • previously earned compass test scores

See all admissions requirements at http://www.darton.edu/admin/admissions/standards.php.

Applicants who test at the Albany or Cordele campus will receive test results and retest information immediately after the test. Students who test off campus will be contacted by Darton’s Testing Office regarding retesting upon receipt of initial scores.

The higher earned score(s) will be used for placement purposes.

Once a student registers for classes, he or she is no longer allowed a placement retest.

Suggested preparation links are available here (http://www.darton.edu/current/testing/links.php)

An explanation of what your scores will mean is available here (http://www.darton.edu/current/testing/placementScoreMeaning.php)
