Please contact the Counseling Department directly at 707.468.3048 for more information.

Placement results help you and your counselor determine which classes are most appropriate.  You may be exempt from this requirement if you have completed a placement test within the previous three years at another college, successfully completed math or English coursework at an accredited college or university, received an Associate degree or higher, or completed certain exams or coursework in high school.  Please check with the Office of Admissions and Records for more information.
