KYOTE & COMPASS Scores

 

EKU no longer processes COMPASS scores for Kentucky community colleges.  We will process COMPASS scores for high schools until June 30, 2017.

KYOTE (Kentucky Online Testing Program) and COMPASS (Computer Adaptive Placement Assessment and Support System) scores are accepted by Eastern Kentucky University for placement purposes.  Your high school or testing site may fax the scores to our testing office at (859) 622-8830.  A COMPASS or KYOTE placement test score will be guaranteed as an indicator of college readiness for 12 months from the date the placement exam is administered.  To locate a COMPASS testing site near you, please go to http://www.act.org/compass/sites/index.html.
