Placement 

 you are ready for college level math and english now!

 

Why is Placement important?

Placement gives recommendations for courses in math, English and English as a second language (ESL). This will determine where you start in the sequence of courses and how long it will take to complete them to get your degree or transfer. A new law in California (AB 705) has made transfer level math and English courses accessible in your first year. For more information on AB 705 please visit here.

 

Who is Placement for?
  • Students who designate their educational goals to include transfer, obtain an associate degree, or earn a certificate of achievement.
  • Students who register for any English course or for a mathematics course or for any course which has English or math as a prerequisite.
Who may be exempt from Placement?
  • Students who have earned an Associate Degree or higher at an accredited college or university. Must provide copy of diploma or unofficial transcript.
  • If a student is enrolling in a course for educational/personal enrichment course that does not require English or Math as a prerequisite, co-requisite or advisory (recommended preparation).
