CCSF AB 705 UPDATE
AB 705 is a bill signed by the Governor on October 13, 2017. 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.
For implementation by Fall 2019, California law AB705 represents a significant change in the way students are placed. Students may be eligible to enroll in transfer-level math or English classes, or transfer-level courses with additional support.
To be placed in a transfer level math or English course students have the following options:
- See a counselor to discuss the best option for success;
- See a Math or English department advisor
- Bring their high school transcripts or other documentation to the Matriculation Office
- Use self-reported high school GPA, if high school records are unavailable
- Take the math and English placement test
We encourage students to talk with a counselor or department advisor about course selection.
Students who feel they need additional language acquisition support may want to take the Credit ESL Placement Test, or talk to a counselor about the ESL sequence at CCSF.
New English and Math Placement Models :
Please note that all new, nonexempt students are still required to complete the Assessment and Placement components as part of the matriculation process. Students may be eligible for the transfer-level English and Math courses effective Spring 2019. Please check your placement results in Web4 and meet with a counselor to develop your educational plan.
