Choose the Best Path for You

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT ENGLISH COURSE FOR YOU?

For a long time, community colleges have required students to prove they have what it takes to perform at transfer level in English and math. Now, because of a new law, AB 705you have the right to choose your own path using evidence that better reflects your experiences and strengths. With the new law, students are no longer burdened to prove they belong in transfer-level courses. Instead, colleges must place students into transfer-level courses unless they can prove students are highly unlikely to succeed.

Choosing the right path is important because  

  • You are far more likely to pass transfer-level English if you start in English 1A.
  • Your academic records and work history are the best predictors of your likelihood to succeed at transfer-level. 
  • You know what you are capable of and should not be told by a single test that you are not ready for college-level work.
  • You do not want to waste time and money in low-level courses that do not count towards your degree or transfer.
