Additional Information

Students who are applying for the fall semester at any College of Southern Idaho location  are encouraged to sign up for one of the free workshops that will help them with the Compass placement exam that all CSI students are required to take.

The Compass test helps CSI advisors place students in the classes that best match their skills. Carla Wherry, CSI College Success Facilitator, said the workshops will prepare students for what the Compass test is, what its scores mean, who needs to take it, and how to prepare for it. Taking the workshop before taking the test will result in better placement.

The Compass Prep Workshop is one four-hour or two, 2-hour sessions, depending on the CSI location. At the main campus in Twin Falls, two 2-hour sessions are held from 7 to 9 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays and Wednesdays of each month.

Workshops at the Mini Cassia Center in Burley are held from 7 to 9 p.m. the second Monday and Wednesday of each month.

One workshop is scheduled for the CSI’s North Side Center in Gooding from 5 to 9 p.m. Aug. 8.

One session will be held at the CSI’s Blaine County Center in Hailey from 5 to 9 p.m. Aug. 6.

Admission is free of charge but since seating is limited, Wherry requests that those who want to take the class please call her at 732-6525 or email cwherry@csi.edu to reserve their place.
