The Math Self-Assessment is no longer available for course placement. It can only provide information about most of the math courses offered at ARC. When you choose a course in the Self-Assessment System, it will provide a sample of problems that you should already be able to do before you begin that course. You must have a valid Los Rios ID number to begin this process. From the time your ID number is generated, you will have to wait 24 hours to access this process.
