Tips For Success
New English and Math Placement!!!
California Assembly Bill (AB) 705, a law which took effect January 1, 2018, requires that California Community Colleges use multiple methods of placing students into transfer-level English, English as a second language (ESL) and math courses.
These methods must include the use of high school cumulative grade point average (HSGPA), high school course grades, and high school courses taken. The law also requires that the method that yields the highest placement override all other methods.
The placement criteria is entered when you submit the application for LAVC via the CCC Apply website. Check and see if you have placements first. Login to your student portal at https://www.lavc.edu/sis and click on Student Status, then click on Assessment Result.
Currently, if you do not have a placement, you would fill out this form: http://www.lavc.edu/counseling/library/images/AB-705-Guided-Self-Placement-Form.pdf and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org from your student LACCD email address.
If you are undecided and need help identifying your major or career, please make an appointment with a counselor by calling (818) 947-2474 or visit the Counseling Department in the Student Services Annex to make a same-day appointment.
