With the passage of AB 705, there are now several different ways for students to receive their math and English placements.
To view your placements online:
- Log in to eServices.
- Click on Academic Records.
- Click on Placements.
If you encounter a “requisites not met” error message when attempting to enroll in any CRC course, please complete a Placement Office Other Questions Form for additional assistance or you may contact the Admissions and Records office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are your placements expired? Please email the Placement Office at email@example.com for additional assistance.
Using High School Records for Placement
You will be automatically placed into English and math classes if you:
- Graduated from a US high school within the last ten years
- Included all of the requested information about your high school records on your college application
You can view your placement results in your eServices account. From your eServices dashboard, click on the Academic Records tile, then Placements.
Submit Your High School Records for Placement
If you graduated from a US high school within the last ten years, but you did not report your high school information on your application, then you can email your unofficial high school transcripts to CRC's Placement Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your English and math course placements. Alternatively, you can drop off your transcripts to the Welcome Center in the College Center building at the main campus.
Use College Records for Placement
If you attended another college (outside of Los Rios), then you can provide college transcripts showing that you passed certain classes. Additional forms may be necessary depending on the college and course.
Please review the pre-approved course lists:
Only pre-approved courses/prerequisite forms can be emailed to Admissions. Math and English Challenges go to the respective email addresses listed below.
If your course is included on the pre-approved list, please email the Admissions and Records Office to email@example.com with the appropriate Math Clearance Challenge Form or the English Prerequisite Clearance/Challenge Form. Admissions and Records staff will assist you with getting the prerequisite cleared.
Use Guided Self-Placement
If you have been out of high school for more than 10 years, have foreign high school transcripts or left high school without graduating, then you are eligible to utilize the guided self-placement process to determine which English and math courses to take. Complete the questions under Missing Math or English Placements? Expired Placements? on our Placement Process page.
After completing guided self-placement, your placements will be updated in our enrollment system (eServices) the following day.
For questions, please email the Placement Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (916) 691-7332.
Placement for Dual Enrollment Students (formerly Advanced Education)
The Placement Office can answer any questions Dual Enrollment students may have regarding placement into math or English classes at CRC. Please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit Dual Enrollment for additional information.
English as a Second Language (ESL) Placement Process
If you are still learning English, then you can complete the ESL Guided Self-Placement Process online, which will place you in ESL classes that match your skill level. Your placements will immediately appear on the screen when you complete the process. Allow 24 hours for those placements to post to your eServices account. See the ESL Placement page for additional information.
Acceptance of Other Test Results
CRC accepts assessment results from other Los Rios Colleges (American River College, Folsom Lake College, and Sacramento City College). We do not accept results from any other colleges and we do not accept EAP test results, SAT scores, or ACT scores.
CRC does grant credit towards its degrees for other successfully completed exams and programs, such as Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and others. See Alternative Credit/Study Options for more information.
Students enrolling at Cosumnes River College may be awarded units of credit for Advanced Placement examinations passed with a 3, 4, or 5. Refer to the AP Chart in the online catalog for information on the specific course credit awarded and General Education areas covered.
- Submitting scores to meet a course prerequisite? Email your unofficial scores to email@example.com.
- Want credit for a course? Make a counseling appointment so your unofficial scores can be evaluated.
Note: Please do not submit official scores to the Admissions and Records Office unless advised to do so by a CRC counselor. Credits/units earned are posted on the transcript as "Pass" ("P") - letter grades are not awarded. Credit may not be earned for courses in which duplicate credit has already been awarded by way of Advanced Placement examinations.
