The Assessment process is an important step to identify appropriate placements and assist in making more informed choices to help you realize your educational goals.
UPDATE: With the newly enacted AB 705 Bill, Norco College has implemented a new placement process to maximize the opportunity for students to enter transfer level coursework for English and math.

Placements for English and math are now measured by using high school information which is collected during the admissions application process. Placement results can be located in
MyPortal by going to Academic Planning then clicking on the Placement Test Summary link.
Students are highly encouraged to meet with an Educational Advisor or a Counselor to better understand placement results.

Per AB 705, students have the right to complete our locally developed process for self-placement into math and English. For English self-guided placement, students who do not place into ENG-1A directly may visit the Counseling Office to complete a form to opt out of ENG-91. For math self-guided placement, students must visit with a counselor to discuss appropriate placement. In certain circumstances, some students will be referred to the math department chair for further assistance in self-placement.
