Assessment is about finding your starting point in college. If you plan to earn a degree or certificate, transfer to a four-year institution, or take a math or English course, you may need to assess your skill level before you register for classes.

Skyline College offers students multiple measures assessment to determine your appropriate English/ESOL and math course recommendations. Depending upon your student type will determine your next step for assessment.

AB 705 is a bill signed by the Governor that requires a community college district or college maximize the probability that a student will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in English and math within a one year time frame if the student declares a major or goal that includes a local degree or certificate. Pre-transfer courses will not start the clock as long as it is not required as part of the sequence to college level English or mathematics/quantitative reasoning.
