Each exam costs $15 per try, payable by cash or check, that is due at the beginning of the exam. If taking the test in person, a photo ID is also required. Students may retake the ACT Compass exam as many times as they would like, but the online exam can only be taken once.

Please contact David Anton (Ross Hall 30, 766-6577, to schedule an appointment.The ACT Compass requires approximately 20-60 minutes to complete, although a student is allowed to take longer. Most calculators are allowed, with the exception of the TI-89, TI-92 and TI-Voyager.

2. The online exam can be taken from any computer with Internet access; no proctor is required. The results of the exam will be emailed to your University of Wyoming account within 48 hours.
