Assessment Center

Due to the state mandated AB 705 bill, our assessment process is going through a transition. In addition to offering placement tests, we will be using high school coursework, grades, and GPA as an option to place students into math and English courses.


The Assessment Center provides services to assist students with a successful transition from application to registration.


Services offered during Testing Hours:

  • Provides placement using unofficial transcripts and test scores 
  • Offers placement tests for English, ESL, Math, Chemistry A180, and Spanish
  • Clears prerequisites 

Placement testing is available on a walk-in basis (no appointments necessary). 


Note: If you are taking 2 tests, please arrive at least 30 minutes before testing hours end.


Services offered during Registration Hours:

  • Application assistance
  • Access to complete the online orientation
  • Assists all students who need help with registration
  • Clears prerequisites
