Introduction to Equitable Placement

Shorten the Path to Success

AB 705 requires Equitable Placement to help students
enter and complete transfer-level coursework in
English and math within a year, with the exception of ESL students, who have a three-year timeframe. By ensuring
that students aren’t stuck in remedial
courses, this helps more students reach their goals sooner.  

For English language learners (ELLs), AB 705 recognizes that ESL coursework is distinct from remedial courses and that students are engaged in foreign language learning (AB 705 Section 1(a)(7)).


This brief interactive module provides a high-level overview of AB 705 and Equitable Placement.
