Placement is one of the most important steps in the enrollment process. At Contra Costa College, we want to help you succeed and part of your success as a college student depends on enrolling in courses that match your abilities and skills.
Get into the math, English, English as a Second Language (ESL) or Spanish classes that are right for you!
To find out your math and/or English course placement(s), you have two options: self reporting or guided self placement.
- If you received a diploma from a California high school within the last 10 years, you can use your high school transcripts for a placement. Use Option 1 below to self-report your information. Current high school students who have completed the 11th grade should also use this option.
- If you received a high school diploma more than 10 years ago, did not receive a diploma, or have a diploma from another country, please use Option 2 below, the guided self-placement.
- If English is not your first language, please make an appointment for the placement test.
