What Should I Bring?

  • An identification card with your name, photo, and UH (Banner) Number. You will not be allowed to take the test without proper identification. (We prefer a current photo Campus ID if you have one).  You should receive your UH (Banner) Number upon acceptance to a University of Hawaii system institution. 

    IMPORTANT!  We have phased out the use of Social Security Numbers on the Compass Placement Test systemwide.  In accordance with UH Executive Policy E2.214, "Social Security Number(s), and its use as an identifier shall be phased out of all existing systems."  As a result, we will be using the attached "Request for UH Number" form to comply with State law and UH policy.  Students who have not applied to Leeward CC but would like to take the Compass Placement Test will need to submit the completed form to the Admissions & Records office to obtain a UH number before testing.

DO NOT BRING…a calculator or scratch paper for the math test.
There is a calculator on the computer that can be used when doing the math test. Scratch paper will be provided for the math portion of the test.
