Establish College Placement

Posted: August 02, 2019

There are two basic ways to complete Math and English placement requirements. You can complete Option A: upload documents for previous test scores or unofficial transcripts, or you can complete Option B: complete a self-guided placement process for a current assessment of your skills. Choose one option.

Option A

  • Upload your documents into your ctcLink portal for previous tests scores (Accuplacer, Smarter Balance, ACT or SAT), unofficial high school or college transcripts, GED certificate in preparation for your mandatory advising appointment. Accuplacer, Smarter Balance, unofficial high school transcripts, and GED certificates are valid within the last 2 years only. Pending review of your high school transcript, further assessment in math and English may be necessary as described in Option B.

Option B

Depending upon your academic background, you may need to complete a self-guided placement process for Math and/or English for a current assessment of your skills. Note: Each of these resources is designed to assess current skills and will include opportunities to review and refresh your skills.

Once you complete these processes, your results will be forwarded to you and your career advisor who will assist in placing you at the correct level in your required general education courses to receive your degree or credential.

Official college transcripts: This two-part process requires you to submit an official transcript from your previous institutions to have applicable earned credit applied to your career program. See our Transfer Student page for more information including completion of the Credit Evaluation Form.
