Home Admissions Placement Math Placement for B-STEM

Beginning in fall 2022, Cosumnes River College removed the majority of below-transfer MATH courses (that is, courses with a course number below 300). The default MATH placement for all incoming students will be a college-level MATH course.

A Note About Your Placement Info

Beginning summer 2024, students with B-STEM majors (Business, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) may receive the following math placements in their eServices account:

  • MATH 300, MATH 310, MATHS 33 + MATH 333, MATH 333, MATH 341, STAT 300

Do not enroll in all of the courses listed above. Please only enroll in the math course(s) needed for your academic goal. If you met with a counselor and have a Student Education Plan, please follow your Student Education Plan. If you do not have a Student Education Plan, please follow your CAC Education Plan or Program Map to determine the recommended math for your major.

Students must have graduated from a U.S. school within the last 10 years and included high school grade and math course information on the CCCApply application.

If you do not see placements in your eServices account, please email the Placement Office at

B-STEM Placement Grids

The following placement grids display the measures that are used to determine a Business, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (B-STEM) student's initial math placement. The specific measures that determine math placement are the highest course completed in high school.

All students – regardless of highest math completed – are eligible to take MATH 333: Introduction to College Algebra with the accompanying MATHS 33 support course. Students who are interested in taking MATH 333 without support or one of the other MATH courses listed need to meet the highest math completed requirements for that specific course as listed on the rubrics.

Students who did not complete high school or who have been out of high school for 10 years or more should use the Guided Self-Placement tool.
