Why is assessment important?

Before we help you select your courses, we need to know your present skill level in math, reading and writing or English as a Second Language, even if you do not plan to take math or English courses. A counselor will use the results of your tests to help you choose the right courses so you can successfully reach your goal.

Testing is available throughout the school year. Most tests are offered on a walk-in basis.

There is no fee for the test, but you should be prepared to pay for parking. The Assessment Center administers tests related to English reading and writing, mathematics, English as a Second Language, and graduation competencies.

You MUST bring photo ID and your Student ID Number in order to test.

We strongly recommend that you prepare for the tests by reviewing our study materials.

Step 4: Course Planning

Choose your first-semester classes with a Counselor in a Course Planning Group Session. After completing Assessment, contact the Counseling Office at (916) 691-7316 to schedule an appointment.

 

What is a course planning session?

All new students should schedule an appointment to attend one of our course planning sessions. These sessions have been specially designed to meet the needs of first-time college students. During the planning session, you will put together a first semester education plan with an academic counselor. Student Educational Plans or iSEPs are required for new students to receive priority registration, and will help assist you in determining the appropriate classes to take your first term. The two hour planning sessions also cover general education requirements, major preparation, class search, and college resources. Contact the Counseling Center to schedule an appointment.

Our counselors not only provide academic counseling, but also athletic, career, personal, and crisis counseling.
