Assessment

The State of California has passed a new law (AB705) which provides students access to complete transfer level courses in English and math in one year. High school GPA will be the primary factor in determining placement. Please access the online guided self-placement questionnaire by following the directions listed below:

 

  • Log into WebAdvisor
  • Click on "Students"
  • Under Orientation/Assess/Advising, Click "Step 2-Assessment/Placement Questionnaire"

The questionnaire will determine if English language learners will need to take the ESL Assessment. If the ESL Assessment is needed, register for one of our scheduled ESL Assessment sessions through WebAdvisor or call the Assessment Center at (619) 644-7200.
