Starting February 20, 2019, as part of the mandates of Assembly Bill (AB 705), LAVC updated the method for placing students in their first English and math courses. Placement of students into English and math courses are determined during the application process which uses the following multiple measures: high school coursework, high school grades, and high school grade point average (GPA).
Multiple measures questions are available for students in the Student Portal for updated English and math placement.
ESL placement will continue to be available through the Assessment Center.
Students may see a Welcome Center counselor for guidance regarding placement or see Math/Englsh/ESL Department Chairs for Prerequisite Challenge or proper placement.
