NEW English and Math Placement Process:                                                                          

Following the guidelines of AB 705, LA Valley College has implemented a NEW process for placement into English & Math courses. English as a Native Language (ENL) & Math assessments are no longer offered as of February 5, 2019. The process uses multiple measures including high school coursework, grades, and grade point average to determine placement into college-level English & Math. 

  • New and returning students may refer to their U.S. high school transcripts when answering the multiple measures questions as part of the initial college application. 
  • Continuing students will be prompted to complete the multiple measures questions in the student portal for updated English and Math placements.

Multiple measures questions will be available online through the student portal starting Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 via

The Los Angeles Community College District has established placement criteria at all nine of its colleges and identified what courses are cleared for enrollment at each placement level. For more information, visit the LAVC Policies webpage for the LACCD Math and English Placement Criteria.

The English as a Second Language (ESL) assessment is still offered. Students interested in being placed in the ESL sequence may visit the Assessment Center starting Wednesday, Feb 20th. 

Students unable to answer the multiple measures questions, should complete the guided self-placement process available February 20th or consult with a counselor.

Please Note: For Associate of Arts/Science degree candidates (non-transfer) placement into college-level math satisfies the math competency requirement. If you are unsure about your degree requirements, consult with a counselor.
