Placement Under AB 705 & AB 1705
Assembly Bill (AB) 705 and 1705 requires the community college to maximize the probability that students will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in English and mathematics within a one-year timeframe, and for a student with a declared academic goal, that the transfer-level coursework satisfies the English and mathematics coursework requirements of the intended certificate or associate degree, or a requirement for transfer within the intended major, within a one-year timeframe.
- By July 1, 2023, all high school graduates attending Cerro Coso will be placed into transfer-level English and math courses. AB 1705 prohibits a community college district or community college from recommending or requiring students to enroll in pretransfer level English or mathematics coursework, except under specified circumstances.
- The community college will apply multiple measures in the placement in one or more of the following areas when placing students to achieve these goals.
- High school GPA
- High school coursework
- High school grades
