Academic Enhancement offers placement testing for both current UK students and prospective students.

What is the purpose of placement testing?
Placement tests help determine how prepared you are for college level coursework in one or more academic areas. The placement test results will be used to determine the most appropriate courses for you as you move forward with college coursework. After you take a placement test(s), you and your advisor will review your results and schedule the best classes for you based on your scores.

Please note: The University of Kentucky accepts placement testing scores for COMPASS math, reading and writing.

To send or check scores:
Office of Undergraduate Admission
100 W. D. Funkhouser Bldg
University of Kentucky
Lexington, KY 40506-0054

You can fax your scores to the attention of Michelle Nordin at 859.257.3823. COMPASS scores from tests taken through the University of Kentucky will automatically be sent to the Admissions Office.
