It is never too late to get students on the right path. Retroactive placement empowers students previously placed in remediation to enroll themselves in transfer-level courses according to the guidelines established by AB 705, which may include corequisites or other support.

Any student who had been enrolled in the past three years should be algorithmically re-placed based on available High School GPA & coursework information from CCCApply.
Students who don’t have any High School GPA information should be directed to Guided Placement.
Any student who is not placed into the highest placement options (i.e., English with no co-req and Precalculus or higher with no co-req) should be informed that they can meet with a counselor to discuss their new placement, including the ability to provide additional high school information that could be used to adjust placement upward.
