    I work 2 jobs mon-sat and donto get off until after 10pm. I have kids on Sunday, so as of now, I have not time! Except late at night. Is there any online colleges that offer the compass placement testing online. The college I am at right now wants me to come in and take the compass, very convenient to tell me this when I have one quarter left to finish my associates degree. The college I am at is a brick and mortor school, but has a business program online which I have been taking successfully online due to my work schedule.

    If I can find a compass placement test that I can take online and have sent to them so I can get into the class I need, that would be great. I seriously have no time whatsoever to go into school and take this test.

    So do ANY of the online colleges offer this? I mean, there has to be right? I would pay myself. There are so many completely online colleges, I would imagine that at least one of them offered that test online.

    Please help!!!!

    First, no. Second, this is an error. COMPASS is done BEFORE you start taking courses with English and Math requirements. Kindly inform your advisor that you no longer need placement since you've already completed the courses (unless of course you are in an AAS program and have taken all of your business department courses with only English and general education courses remaining- in which case that's why they are asking for you to take the test). COMPASS absolutely, 100% is the discretion of the adviser, so with a degree nearly complete simply ask for it to be waived. If your adviser is an idiot, go over their head.

    That is right, it is an aas program, they said they missed the part of transcript transfer where it said I didn't take math, yet they waived the English stud since it was already taken. One quarter left, now without compass, I will need a whole other year of math courses. Who would I go to it I go over the advisors head? This is crazy
