COMPASS is the assessment tool used for students planning to take degree credit classes at Madison College. This computerized, un-timed test includes assessments in reading, writing and math. Most Madison College programs require students to also complete an essay as part of the English portion of the test. 

For registration purposes, a COMPASS assessment test may not be required if a student has a bachelor's degree or has taken a college level English or Math class and earned a grade of C or above. Send official transcripts to: Madison College Enrollment Services, 1701 Wright Street, Madison, WI 53704-2599.

Accommodations are available for testers with documented disabilities. Please contact Disability Resource Services for documentation requirements and for information on how to request accommodations for your COMPASS test.
