The Assessment process is an important step to identify the appropriate placement courses for English, reading, math and/or ESL. These results provide direction 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 assessment process to maximize the opportunity for students to enter transfer level coursework for English and math. Click here to learn more about AB 705
Placements for English, reading and math are now measured by using high school information instead of a test.
Please note, students interested in English as a Second Language (ESL), courses will need to complete the Proficiency Test for English as a Second Language (PTESL).
To complete the Assessment, you may come in as a drop-in during the Assesment and Advisement session hours (see calendar). The Assessment and Advisement session includes:
- Completion of the assessment survey
- Career Assessment (first-time college students)
- Meet with an Educational Advisor to review results, receive recommended courses and complete an abbreviated first semester plan (first-time college students).
