What is AB-705?


The Student Success & Assessment Services Office is pleased to share some very important information with you. All students will have an opportunity to qualify for transfer-level math and English, effective Summer and Fall 2019 enrollment.

Research shows that a high school grade point average is the strongest predictor of performance in college-level coursework. With the newly enacted Assembly Bill 705, students will receive a placement using high school records instead of our old assessment tests.

In order to assist you in making informed Spring 2019 enrollment decisions, we are providing you an early review of our tentative placement models. The models are currently being reviewed college-wide and are expected to be adopted in January 2019 for Summer and Fall 2019 enrollment
