AB 705 - California Community Colleges Assessment & Placement

AB 705 is a bill signed by the Governor on October 13, 2017 that took effect on January 1, 2018. The bill requires that a community college district or college maximize the probability that a student will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in English and math within a one year timeframe and use, in the placement of students into English and math courses, one or more of the following: high school coursework, high school grades, and high school grade point average.

Students now can enroll in specified transfer-level English and math courses.  We recommend that you speak with a counselor about these courses before registration. Counselors can provide a multiple measures review of your preparation for transfer-level work. They can also inform you about the particular courses that are required to meet your goal.
