- Placement Exam: Compass or ACT
Compass is a computerized placement exam available in the Academic Resource Center that will help your academic advisor place you in the correct English and math and reading based classes. Call 417-455-5602 to schedule a test time, or call your nearest Crowder site listed below. ACT test results: You must have a 18 on the English portion of the ACT, a 23 on the math portion, and an 18 in the reading portion to be placed college-level English, math courses, and classes with a reading requirement. If you do not have these scores you must take the COMPASS. COMPASS consists of three parts: Math, Reading, and Writing. There is no initial charge for taking the COMPASS test. If you score does not qualify you for Dual Credit course(s), retakes of any section cost $5 each. COMPASS test may be taken up to 3 times prior to enrolling in Dual Credit course(s).
- Cost and Payment
Dual credit classes will be billed to your home address at a rate of $60 per credit hour. There are generally no additional fees, and most text books will be loaned at no charge if returned in good condition. Workbooks and passkey must be purchased. Receipt of a bill will depend on the date of enrollment. It is difficult to get to all schools for enrollment at the same time, so some billings will be later than others. Payment must be made in full before a student may enroll in any classes in subsequent semesters or receive a transcript. Although there is a payment plan available, the student (or parents) can make payments on their own schedule, keeping in mind that they must be paid in full by the end of the semester.

You can place your textbook order online or make arrangements to pick them up at the Neosho (main) campus.
