Understanding Your Placement

You can find your placement results for English Writing, math or English as a Second Language (ESL) in your eServices account under the Steps to Success tab. For students enrolling in English Writing and math, placements may be based on a review of your academic record or on a Guided Self-Placement. For ESL students, placements will be based on assessment tests completed at the college. Please see messages below from ARC academic departments concerning your placements. Please use the tables below to assist you in understanding your placement.
 

Information Concerning English Writing Placement

Your placement will be based on either any relevant high school records we have on file or a Guided Self-Placement tool. If we do not have your high school records on file, in some cases, you may also provide unofficial transcripts of high school records for evaluation. Please see information concerning our Placement Re-Evaluation Petition (PREP) process.

If you don’t have any of the above, your placement will be based on either any relevant high school records we have on file or a Guided Self-Placement tool.

Please schedule a new student appointment. If group sessions are filled and no appointment is available (no records matched), please check the Appointments & Drop-in Counseling section of the Counseling web page to schedule an individual appointment.
