URGENT!!  COMPASS Math Testing
Due to a technical malfunction with the COMPASS program nationwide, the Assessment Center will not administer ANY COMPASS tests, including the Math Placement Test, until approximately 11 AM on Monday, July 28.  However, we anticipate there will be a LONG line and may need to turn away students.  If you can postpone your testing until Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon, you are STRONGLY urged to do so.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
