Assessment Program Description

The Assessment Office schedules and administers placement tests for new non-exempt students, continuing students who are eligible for re-assessment, and returning students who need to retake the placement test for course placement into English, Math, or ESL courses. The office also schedules in-person (and online) appointments for orientations and counseling.

You will lose your place in priority enrollment if you do not participate in orientation, assessment, and educational planning services.

Please note the following changes under AB 705:

For students enrolling in math and/or English in Fall 2019, assessment testing will no longer be required for students to be placed into English and math courses. All students are eligible to enroll in transfer level math and English with varying levels of support recommended based on high school GPA, educational goal, and other information.  Assessment testing into English as a Second Language (ESL) courses will continue for students who are not native speakers of English and who have not graduated from an American high school.

For students enrolling in math and/or English in Spring/Summer 2019, assessment testing will be provided until February 14, 2019.
