The assessment and placement process has been established to enable all students an opportunity to achieve probable success in their course work.
Students will complete an online tool called the Assessment Questionnaire (AQ) and will receive recommendations for enrolling into English, math, and reading courses based on an assessment utilizing multiple measures. The AQ is not a test. Students will be asked to provide information about the English and math courses they took in high school and their grades in those courses as well as their cumulative grade point average.
In compliance with state law (AB 705), students are eligible to enroll in transfer level courses in English and math. Students may be recommended to enroll in corequisite courses (courses taken at the same time) to enable them to be successful in transfer level English and math courses. Students also have the option of enrolling in non-transfer level courses if they so choose. Faculty in math and English as well as faculty counselors are available to assist in recommending course enrollment levels.
