How To Register For Classes

2. Participate in a Skills Assessment/ English and Math Placement Tests

There are a variety of methods that CR?s academic counselors and advisors use to develop individualized educational plans and to place students in the classes that are most likely to maximize their success. One of the primary methods is to evaluate the scores that students receive on English and math placement tests administered by the college.

Placement tests are required of students who plan to:

  • pursue a degree or certificate that has English or math in the curriculum;
  • pursue a transfer program; or
  • take a course that has a math or English prerequisite

New and returning students may not have to take these assessments if they can verify:

  • that they have taken a comparable state-approved placement test at CR or another California community college within the past three years, or
  • that they have taken a college level (degree applicable) English and/or math course with a ?C? grade or higher from any accredited college, or
  • that they have taken a College Entrance Examination Board Advance Placement Exam in English and/or math and received a score of 3, 4, or 5.

Students seeking these exemptions will be asked to provide written proof that they have taken the above to a counselor or advisor prior to registering for the English or math courses they wish to take.
