Allen Community College uses mandatory placement testing to place students in classes in which they can be most successful. New students will take placement tests on campus (COMPASS or ASSET) prior to enrollment. If a student scores below college level in reading, writing or math, the student will be required to enroll in developmental courses the first semester. Successful completion of necessary developmental courses will be required before enrollment in college level courses will be allowed. The placement test is taken after the student arrives on campus.
