All students who intend to enroll at the University of Hawaii Maui College are required to take the COMPASS test. The COMPASS is used to place students in appropriate English and Math courses, and also identifies prerequisite skill levels for certain courses and programs. If you took the COMPASS test but did not enroll in courses, your test may still be valid if you took the test within two years of registering for classes.

Placement testing is available on a walk-in basis at The Learning Center (TLC) during regular hours of operation. Placement testing is also available at several Maui public high schools. If you are a high school student, contact your high school counselor for more information.

  • COMPASS Test must begin before the last operating hour of the day. COMPASS will not be administered within 1 hour of closing.
