Continuing, Returning and Transfer Students
All Las Positas college students need to complete the English/Math assessments, online orientation and Student Education Plan (SEP). Once you have completed these three core services, you will be eligible for priority registration for the following term.
Please complete all the following steps before attending an English/Math, Chemistry or ESL assessment session:
- Apply to Las Positas College if you have not attended in the last year.
- Complete the Online Orientation.
- Review the Study Guides and prepare for your assessment. This is very important as you will not be allowed to re-test for 6 months after taking the English/Math or Chemistry assessment and one year for the ESL Assessment.
- Choose an Assessment session that is convenient for you from the Assessment Schedule (pdf)*.
- Arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the session, bring a valid photo ID and your student ID "W" number.
- The Assessement Specialist will place you in a Program Planning Session to complete you student education plan, so bring your school/work schedule.
