The Testing Center provides a variety of testing services. We offer the COMPASS (Shoreline's placement test), GED, and proctored exams for academic and business certification. Detailed information about each test, including fees, can be found on the left sidebar links.
Make an appointment for the COMPASS test online. Make an appointment for a proctored exam, HOBET, or ASSET test, by calling the Testing Center at 206-546-4608.
The GED registration and tests are offered on a first-come/first-served basis at the times listed on the schedule. Please arrive at the testing center by the sign-in deadlines for the GED registration session (if you have not taken any tests yet) or test time (if you have already attended the GED Registration).
Test fees must be paid prior to testing, and are non-refundable. If you are in doubt about whether you need a test, please contact advising or admissions before making an appointment. The cashiers are located on the 2nd floor of the Foss building, and usually close at 4:30.
Identification must be verified at the Testing Center prior to taking any test. Official ID is accepted--state issued driver's license or ID card, military or tribal ID, or passport. For those taking the Compass test, school ID is acceptable.
Children are not permitted in the testing rooms and testing staff does not provide childcare. Please make childcare arrangements elsewhere while you are testing.
