Math

In January 2019, the mathematics department changed to a 5 level placement system, as shown in the table below. If you assessed prior to 2019 and need help with determining your placement levels or if you should reassess, please contact assessment at 661-362-3457. Note that many courses are available in more than one level, but if you see a course with a 90-level support course the two must taken at the same time. We offer placement charts in person at each our centers, and you will recieve one upon completion of your assessment.

English

Starting Fall, 2019 the English department will no longer be offering courses below the 100 level. As a result all students will place into our new English composition course (English Level 101 4 Units). 

ESL

Starting Fall 2019, all students who assess will be made eligible to enroll into English 101, however, our placement system will still generate recommended coursework for students whose first language is not English. For these students, they will have to decide for themselves if they feel ready for transfer level English, or, if they would like to develop their skills in one or more of the  ESL courses listed below. 

ESL Level 1 ESL Level 2 ESL Level 3 ESL Level 4
