Remote COMPASS Testing

To take the COMPASS test at Owens for another college:

Testing Services offers proctoring for students who need to take the COMPASS test for another college.  Prior to making your appointment, you complete these two steps: 

  •  You must contact the school you will be attending and receive your Remote COMPASS registration number.  This will be sent to you via email.  It is very important that you bring this with you, as Owens Community College will not be able to access this number.
  •  You must make your payment of $35 to Owens Community College, prior to your appointments.  Payments should be made online at https://www.owens.edu/cgi-bin/TestPayments.pl.  Complete all fields and choose “Remote COMPASS.” 

If you prefer to print out the Application for Examination, you may do so from the same webpage and put it and the payment into the drop box in College Hall across from Oserve (in Toledo) or the payment drop box located near the exit door of the Bookstore (in Findlay).

    • If mailing, please return to Owens Community College, ATTN: Student Accounts, PO Box 10,000, Toledo, OH, 43699-1947. 
    • Make all checks payable to Owens Community College. 
    • The drop box accepts both cash and checks; however, only checks will be accepted by mail.  You are responsible for submitting your payment at least 48 hours prior to your preferred testing date.
