Important Information Regarding Assessment

As one of the mandates of Assembly Bill (AB 705) passed in Fall of 2017, SCC has updated the method for placing students in their first English or Math course and will now be using Multiple Measures to place students, such as a combination of high school course information, high school GPA, and assessment information. You will be automatically placed into English and math classes if you included all of the requested information about your high school records on your CCCApply application.

Assessment for Math and English Placement is available only for students entering in Fall 2018 or Spring 2019. 

ESL Placement will remain the same

Note: For those who have graduated high school more than 10 years ago or graduated high school in a foreign country, you will not receive an automatic placement.  Please call the Assessment Center at (916) 558-2541 for further information.
