AB 705

With the newly enacted Assembly Bill 705, students may receive English and Math course placements using high school performance data. To find out more information about the legislation and options to complete the assessment step, please go to our AB 705 page.

About AB 705 Math & English Placement Change 
Beginning Spring 2019, placement exams for Math and English will no longer be offered. Due to the passage of law AB  705, students may use their U.S. high school data to be placed into transfer-level English and Math courses. 

Please visit the AB 705 webpage for more information. 
Get Your Math & English Placement Course Information 
View your English and Math course placement based on the new English and Math course placement models per AB 705 by logging into Web4. You can review your course placement, Web Registration Appointment and other related information. Students who feel they need additional language acquisition support may want to take the Credit ESL Placement Test or talk to an academic counselor about the ESL sequence.

Testing General Info

We continue to offer ESL placement testing for students who feel they need additional language acquisition support. Placement test results are used for course placement purposes only. They are not used to prevent any student from attending CCSF. Counselors will use these results along with other information to help students decide on a program of courses.

To receive an earlier registration date—complete assessment, a new student orientation, and see a counselor to get an education plan!

-No appointments are necessary for most tests. Seating is first-come-first-serve.
