Take the Placement Test in Your City or State

If you are in another city or state and cannot take the COMPASS test at Shoreline Community College, we will arrange a test for you in your region. Just email our Testing Center with the following information: 

  • Your full name, including middle initial
  • Current address
  • City or state where you’d like to take the test
  • Birth date
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Shoreline Community College student ID number 

After receiving your request, the Testing Center will send you a payment form, which you need to fax back to our cashier (our fax number is on the form). After receipt of payment, the Testing Center will set up your test. You will then receive a confirmation email of the testing arrangement from ACT/COMPASS with details confirming test location, fees, etc.


If you have any questions about this process, please call our Testing Center at 206-546-4608.
