Your placements into English and Math are primarily based on your high school GPA. If you are

displayed in the Assessment Placements section.

For English only, if your cumulative high school GPA is between 2.7 and 2.99, you are required to submit a letter of support from your last or current high school English teacher stating you are capable of college-level work.


Advanced education students qualify for priority registration as Priority 3. Advanced education students who have completed the application process will be enrolled during Priority 3 by Admissions and Records. You will receive an email confirmation upon enrollment.

As advanced education students have their tuition/enrollment fees waived, students are only responsible for the payment of the additional fees, including the universal transit pass (UTP) and student representation fee.

Note: High school students may be exempt from fees associated with being a California nonresident; however, international student tuition is not waived.
