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 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 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.

If you do not see your non-Los Rios Math course listed, you will need to challenge the prerequisite by emailing a completed Math Clearance Challenge Form to

If you do not see your non-Los Rios English course listed, you will need to challenge the prerequisite by emailing a completed English Clearance Challenge Form to

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 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 or, 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.
