Technical Colleges offer open door admissions and lower tuition
rates. Students who complete associate degrees and certificates are more
likely to move into higher-status management and professional positions
with higher earnings. An investment of a few thousand dollars now will
likely pay lifelong dividends, as students who earn associate degrees
average lifetime earnings of $250,000 more than people without degrees.
The COMPASS® computer-adaptive college placement test helps colleges:
- Quickly evaluate incoming students' skill levels in reading, writing, math, and ESL
- Place students in appropriate courses
- Connect them to the resources they need to achieve academic success
counselor and/or career specialist can provide additional information
about the Compass and instruct you on contacting your local community
and/or technical college to take the Compass test.
