Important Information Regarding Assessment

Welcome to the Sacramento City College West Sacramento Center Assessment Center. As one of the mandates of Assembly Bill (AB 705) passed in Fall of 2017, Sacramento City College is changing the way that students are placed in their English and Math classes. You will be automatically placed into English and Math classes using the HS GPA you reported on your CCCApply application.

English and Math placement tests are no longer being offered at Sacramento City College beginning February 1, 2019. Assessment is no longer required for students entering college. You can see your placements when you log into your eServices account, select Student Center menu and click on “Steps to Success” tab.

If you are applying to SCC for Summer/Fall 2019, your placement will be available beginning in March. If you graduated from High School 10+ years ago or graduated high school from a foreign country, there will be a Self-Guided Placement Tool available to place you into your English and Math classes beginning in Late Spring Semester. Check with the front desk for more information.

ESL Placement will remain the same.

*For more immediate placement, please visit either the English and/or Math Department for additional guidance.
