- You will be placed using "multiple measures" consisting of high school GPA, courses, and grades reported on your CCCApply admission application.
- You may check your placement once you have activated your Corsair Connect account. Just log in, click the "Placement" tab and review your placement. If you do not see the courses listed, some needed information from your admission application was missing some necessary information. Follow the instructions on the screen to generate your placement.
- You will be placed using “guided self-placement,” a set of online tools that help evaluate how prepared you are with the skills you are expected to have before starting a particular math or English class. To be guided to the best class for your needs, it is important that you read everything presented to you carefully, and that you answer honestly.
- To access the guided self-placement tools, go to Corsair Connect. Then login, click the “Placement” tab and follow the instructions on the screen.
- Plan on completing your math and English placements together. You may take each guided self-placement only one time.
- Please note: The math guided self-placement presents six (6) options based on your area of study (major) or the course you are interested in taking. If you are not sure which option to choose, check with a counselor. You may take any of the math guided self-placements only one time.
The purpose of Assembly Bill 705 is to help you enroll in and complete transfer-level classes in English and math within one year.
For English, depending on your placement, you will start in one of two ways: (a) directly in English 1, a transfer level English course; (b) directly in English 1, paired with English 28, a supporting course. In some instances, you may also be encouraged to take another reading or grammar supporting course.
For math, depending on your placement, you will start in one of three ways: (a) directly in a transfer-level math course; (b) directly in a transfer level math course paired with one supporting course; or (c) one semester of an accelerated math course followed by one semester of transfer level math, either as a stand-alone course or paired with one supporting course.
The ESL placement process remains the same for now. If you want to take credit ESL classes, you must complete the ESL placement exam, which consists of ACCUPLACER Language Use, Reading Skills, and Sentence Meaning.
Visit the Success and Engagement Center website to sign up to take an ESL placement exam. When the Campus reopens, we will resume testing walk-in hours for the ESL placement process.
