Continuing, Returning and Transfer Students
Research shows that a high school grade point average is the strongest predictor of performance in college-level coursework. With the newly enacted Assembly Bill (AB) 705, students will receive a placement using high school records and multiple measures. All students are eligible for first level transfer math courses.
Students who have previously assessed may take the English and/or Math Guided Self-Placements for first level transfer course recomendation and clearance.
For First Level Transfer English and Math clearance and ESL, Chemistry, Spanish and French assessments:
- Complete the English and Math Guided Self-Placement online or in-person. See the Tutorial for English Guided Self-Placement and Tutorial for Math Guided Self-Placement for online assistance or attend an assessment session for in-person assistance.
- To take the ESL or Chemistry assessment, choose an Assessment session that is convenient for you from the Assessment Schedule on the Assessment Center home page. Arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of the session, bring a valid photo ID and your student ID "W" number.
- Review the Study Guides and prepare for your assessment. This is very important as you will not be allowed to re-test for 6 months after taking Chemistry assessment and one year for the ESL Assessment.
