Testing & Financial Aid



Register to take the ACT (American College Test). Students will have to either pay the fee for the test or get a fee waiver (up to 2) if they qualify for free/reduced lunch. Deadlines to register are about a month before the actual test. Students looking at four-year colleges and universities should take the ACT.


The ACCUPLACER test (formerly the COMPASS test) is a placement test for community colleges. It is free as long as you are a high school student. Students looking at a two-year community college should sign up to take the ACCUPLACER test. There are plenty of testing centers close to Crete. Visit with your counselor to set up a date and time to take the ACCUPLACER test.
