Understanding Your Placement

You can find your placement results for English Writing, Math or English as a Second Language (ESL) Math 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 (coming soon). 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.

Your placement will be based on either any relevant high school records we have on file or a Guided Self-Placement tool (coming soon). 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.
