CASPer Online Test

Beginning with the 2019-2020 application cycle, we are requiring that all applicants to COMP-Pomona or COMP-Northwest take the Altus Assessments’ CASPer online test. CASPer is an online, video-scenario based, situational judgement test designed to measure professional/personal characteristics, such as empathy and communication skills.

We will accept tests taken between May of the application year and February of the anticipated entering year. The test must be taken with each application or reapplication. We will not accept test scores taken in a prior application year.

Sign up for the CASPer on-line test and submit your scores as soon as possible. To ensure accurate and timely receipt of your test scores, please:

  • Use the same email address to apply to AACOMAS and to register for the CASPer test. This will facilitate matching your test results with your application.
  • Select College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific once for your test results. As with the MCAT, we will use the same scores for both campuses.

More information on the CASPer online test can be found at https://altusassessments.com/.
