Answers to Commonly Asked Questions regarding the Placement Process

Placement testing is required of students who plan to:

  • pursue a degree or certificate;
  • pursue a transfer program; or
  • take a course that has a math or English prerequisite.

New and returning students may be exempt from part of the placement process if they can verify that they have:

  • taken a comparable state-approved placement test at Humboldt State University, College of the Redwoods, or another California Community College within the past three years, or;
  • taken an English and/or a math course with a “C” grade or higher from any accredited college, or;
  • taken a College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Exam in English and/or math and received a score of 3, 4, or 5 or;
  • participated in the California State University (CSU) Early Assessment Program (EAP) during Standardized Testing And Reporting (STAR) testing in high school and received exemptions from CSU placement testing in English/Language Arts and/or mathemat?ics.? Students who are identified as EAP Conditional in English or mathematics will need to take an approved English or mathematics class and earn a “C” or higher in their senior year in order to be exempt from CR placement testing.

 If a student believes the level determined by CR placement tests is inappropriate (either too high or too low), the student should meet with an academic advisor or counselor to discuss options. In addition to placement scores, academic advisors or counselors may use the following indicators to determine the extent to which a student is prepared for college coursework:

  • whether or not the student has had any prior college experience;
  • highest level of English and math completed at prior college(s);
  • the student’s previous success at the college level, as reflected in his/her transcripts;
  • the student’s past study habits;
  • the number of employment-related and family obligations the student has; and
  • the strength of the student’s motivation to achieve his/her educational goal(s).
