Assessment and Placement

Unsure of what classes you are eligible for? You got this! Whether your goal is to attain an Associate Degree, certificate, or to transfer to a university, the Assessment Questionnaire (AQ) provides you with recommendations for enrolling in transfer-level English, math, and reading courses. This online placement tool enables students to achieve success along their academic journey.  

The AQ is not a test, but instead an assessment tool that utilizes multiple measures to make recommendations for transfer-level courses. Multiple measures include your high school English and math courses, your grades in those courses, and your cumulative grade point average.

Students who complete the AQ will be eligible for the following.

  • English: Students with a U.S. high school diploma or equivalent will automatically be eligible for transfer-level English upon completion of the AQ.  For English language learners/Non-native speakers, credit ESL courses are available through the American Language (AMLA) Department.
  • Math: All students will be eligible for transfer-level math upon completion of the AQ.
  • Reading: Students with a U.S. high school diploma or equivalent will automatically be eligible for transfer-level reading upon completion of the AQ.
