COMPASS Test

Most students will take a COMPASS test at SOAR. The COMPASS success plan will allow us to determine your Math and English college readiness. COMPASS will also assist your advisor with registering you for classes. It may be helpful to look at sample questions before taking the COMPASS tests. Visit the following sites to get an idea of what to expect.

If you are a student with a disability, we encourage you to contact the Office for Disability Services prior to your SOAR date in order to determine appropriate accommodations. Contact ODS at 217-735-7227 or ODS@lincolncollege.edu.
