A student’s COMPASS placement score determines whether and at which level the student should be placed into a college preparation course. Students can decide independently to take college preparation courses to improve their basic skills knowledge. Instructors may refer students whose academic performance indicates they would benefit from additional college preparation. In addition, students can be referred by their instructors based upon their performance in class. College preparation courses are offered at the following BMCC locations: Pendleton, Hermiston, Milton-Freewater, and Baker City. 
College Preparatory Program offices are located in the lower level of Morrow Hall. Debbie Merrill, program assistant is located in M-4; telephone 541-278-5803; email:
