Reading Competency

We will no longer offer English assessment tests (reading or writing) after January 2019.

Students may elect to take a reading class if they wish. Placement into reading courses for those wishing to take a reading class will be based on high school GPA:

  • 3.0+=ENGRD 310
  • 1.9-2.9=ENGRD 110
  • below 1.9=ENGRD 11 (or ENGRD 10 for very low level)

Reading competency may be met in any one of the following ways:

  • Complete ENGRD 310 with a “C” or higher
  • Complete the IGETC for UC or GE breadth for CSU
  • Complete our local GE pattern for the AA/AS

Have an overall 3.2 high school GPA that is no more than 10 years old
