Understanding My Course Recommendations

With the passing of AB 705 into state law, starting the Fall 2019 semester, students may register for first level transfer courses in English and Mathematics regardless of placement or current enrollment in a pre-transfer level English and/or Mathematics course. 
The intent of AB 705 is to maximize the success of students by allowing them access to English and Mathematics transfer-level courses and receiving a recommendation on the level of support needed in order to succeed in the transfer course. The recommendation, based on high school coursework, grades, and GPA, follows these placement rules: 


​High School Performance

​Recommended Placement

​HS GPA of 2.6 or higher

​English A100 - Freshman Composition: no additional academic or concurrent support

​HS GPA of 1.9 - 2.59

​English A100 - Freshman Composition: additional academic and concurrent support recommended

​HS GPA of less than 1.9

​English A100 - Freshman Composition: additional academic and concurrent support strongly recommended

Math: to be announced

Selecting the right courses will be critically important as the College implements these changes. Please make an appointment with a counselor to discuss your options.
