California Assembly Bill (AB) 705 requires Las Positas College to maximize the probability that students will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in English and mathematics within a one-year timeframe and use high school coursework, high school grades, and high school grade point average for placement.
Las Positas College is committed to providing academic and student support services to achieve the goal of maximizing the probability students will enter and complete such coursework.
