The College is in the process of revising how to assess students for placement into
English and math courses. The process by which most students will be placed in English
and math courses will be primarily based on students' high school coursework, high
school grades, and overall high school grade point average (GPA). Continuing students
who were previously assessed by the English and math placement tests will have the
option to be re-assessed using the new assessment process. More information will
be posted in the student portal. Please continue to check your portal (inside.mtsac.edu)
Students attending Mt. San Antonio College are required to participate in assessment.
The assessment and placement process has been established to enable all students an
opportunity to be successful in their course work. In addition, the process allows
the faculty to provide instruction at an appropriate level with the knowledge that
students will be reasonably prepared.
You must do the following prior to taking the placement test:
• Students may retest after three months.
• After assessment, your next step in the enrollment process is to contact Counseling
and make an appointment to attend an orientation
