Student Self-Assessment

The Student Self-Assessment measure is available to students who have attended and completed an English or math course in high school in the United States school system.

Students can use their high school data, including courses, grades, and GPA to determine a placement for English and/or math courses at Skyline College. 

Using metrics established by Skyline College English and math faculty, students complete a questionnaire designed to determine an appropriate English and/or math course placement.

Students are strongly encouraged to bring their high school transcripts to their placement appointment.
