The passage of Assembly Bill 705 (AB 705) by the State of California has created a unique and exciting opportunity for incoming community college students to utilize their high school performance in lieu of completing entrance testing to determine their math and English course placement.  The intent of AB 705 is to “maximize the probability that a student will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in English and mathematics in a one year timeframe” and require placement in remedial courses only when they are “highly unlikely to succeed” in transfer-level coursework.  Please click the link below for more information on AB 705.

Once you have completed your application for admission, please contact the Testing Center to be cleared to register for your math and English courses.


Please refer to the charts below to determine the appropriate math and English courses based on your selected program. Please note, any course with a number below 1500 is a non-transferable course.
