Equitable Placement and Completion

Shorten the Path to Success

AB 705 requires Equitable Placement and Completion 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 and Completion.
