English and Math Placement

Beginning March, 1, 2019, Grossmont College students will no longer need to take the Accuplacer English and math assessment test for placement into English and math classes due to AB705.

Please refer below for the multiple ways in which a student can receive English and math placement:

High School GPA

The State of California has passed a new law (AB705) which provides students access to complete transfer level courses in English and math in one year. High school GPA will be the primary factor in determining placement. An online questionnaire will be available to provide placement for English and math classes.

Beginning on March, 1, 2019, please access the online guided self-placement questionnaire by following the directions listed below:

  • Log into WebAdvisor
  • Click on "Students"
  • Under Orientation/Assess/Advising, Click "Step 2-Assessment/Placement Questionnaire"
The questionnaire will help you determine if you need to take the ESL guided self-placement. It is your right to take transfer-level English classes or ESL classes if English is not your first or native language. If the ESL guided self-placement is neededproceed to WebAdvisor.
Course from Another College

If an English or math class has been completed from another college or university within the United States, students can submit the appropriate documentation through the prerequisite clearance online form for possible English and math placement.

Advanced Placement (AP) Exam

If an AP exam has been passed with a score of 3 or higher in the following classes: English Language and Composition, English Literature and Composition, Calculus AB or BC, or Statistics, students can submit the appropriate documentation through the prerequisite clearance online form for possible English and math placement.

Please refer to the following document for a complete list of options for English and math placement: Placement Options
