English and Math Placement
For many years, community colleges have required students to prove, through standardized placement assessments, they have what it takes to perform at transfer-level English and math courses. Now, students have the right to choose their own path using evidence that better reflects their experiences and strengths. Pursuant to Education Code section 78213, students have the right to access transfer-level coursework in English, mathematics (or quantitative reasoning), and credit English as a Second Language.
Students should meet with a counselor to ensure they are enrolled in the classes that will help them complete their goals faster and save them time and money. Hancock provides multiple levels of support to help students succeed, such as advising, tutoring, and co-requisite concurrent supporting courses. A counselor can direct you to these support services.
