What is AB705? What do I need to do?
You have the right to access transfer-level coursework in English, Math, and credit English as a second language (ESL) at all California Community Colleges.
ENGLISH, ESL, AND MATH PLACEMENT
California Assembly Bill (AB) 705 (which is now part of Ed Code 78213), 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 overrides all other methods.
The College Catalog describes the English, ESL and Math placement procedures in detail on page 138. You may also contact the department chairs for additional information.
