Remote COMPASS Testing

As you may have read on our page about placement testing, students may schedule and sit for a math, reading, and/or English/writing placement test at a testing center that is convenient to them. These three placement tests are offered via the COMPASS online testing system and a list of testing centers is available here. While COMPASS tests are untimed, please note that students will be charged a fee by the testing center for administering the test remotely. There is no fee to take these tests on UK's campus in Lexington. This is the process for scheduling and taking a remote placement test:

  • Determine which test(s) you need to take. This can be done by reviewing our placement testing info online, reviewing the information you received from the Office of Admission, or speaking with your academic advisor.
  • Choose your testing location. An interactive guide is available online.
  • Complete and submit the form below (all fields).
  • Once Academic Enhancement has processed your request, you will receive a confirmation email with a registration number and contact information for the testing center you chose. It is the student's responsibility to contact the testing center and schedule a day and time to take the test.
