3. ASSESSMENT TESTING:
After you complete your application and get your registration appointment, you should proceed immediately to take your assessment test in the Assessment Office in AD 103. You will take a basic skills assessment in reading, writing, language usage, and mathematics to help you select appropriate courses. This is not an entrance exam to the college and you will not be penalized in any way for your score; however, it is a very important step in the enrollment process. To take the ENL (English As a Native Language), English only, or Math only test, students must go to the Drop-In Center. To check-in, go to AD 103 during the hours Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 4 pm and Friday, 9 am to 12 pm.
Please note that the online system will only allow you to sign up for the ESL (English as a Second Language) Test. Students can schedule an ESL assessment test appointment through the Assessment Center website or in person in room AD 103. Please see the Assessment Center website for more information.
4. PREREQUISITE CLEARANCE:
A prerequisite is a course you are required to pass with a grade of C or better before you will be allowed to enroll in the next level. You may clear prerequisites through the English and Math Assessment exam or by showing proof of prerequisites completed at other colleges. Prerequisites completed at another college must be approved by the Counseling Office. An official or unofficial transcript is required for this purpose. Please see the class schedule for a listing of prerequisites.
It is highly recommended that you complete our college orientation. The orientation will provide you with an overview of available student support services, and academic and vocational programs. You can schedule an appointment for an orientation session online or in person at the Assessment/Matriculation Office AD 103.
