You have the opportunity to be placed into an English and math course based upon your experience through a new Guided Self-placement process. This process will help you identify the course(s) most appropriate for you based on a series of easy questions about yourself and your academic goals.
If you are eligible, please check your Los Rios Gmail account for an email called "How to Get Your English and Math Course Placements", containing link to Guided Self-placement. If you have not received that email, you can call the Assessment Center at (916) 484-8423 to request the link.
