Math and English Placement Levels

Assessment & Placement Guidelines

Saddleback College adopted the Current Assessment Process in advance of the 2019-2020 Academic Year. Prior to Fall 2019, Saddleback students may have received Initial Math & English Placement from Assessment Exams (CTEP, MDTP, Accuplacer) or the evaluation of Alternative Evidence. Returning college students who previously received placement for a basic skills course like ENG 390 or MATH 351 may submit an AB 705 Placement Review to gain access to college-level Math and English courses.

ESL Course Placement Process: Students who previously completed an ESL Assessment Exam (CELSA) may schedule a Counseling appointment for an updated ESL course placement. ESL course placement now includes college-level ESL 90 and ENG 1A for advanced students.
See the English as a Second Language (ESL) Placement page for further details.
