Note: You will need to submit a recommendation letter from a current teacher in the subject for which you wish to enroll (e.g. a current math teacher if you are applying for a math course)

Step 4: Submit your application by June 16, 2015 at 11:59 PM (Pacific).

If the timing of the course is a primary factor in your planning for the 2015-16 school year, check the Master Schedule on June 12th to see the time(s) of your desired course. If the course fits in your schedule, submit your application by 11:59 PM June 16, 2015 (Pacific).Note: Course spaces are not guaranteed, even for applicants who might be admissible to a given course.

Step 5: Familiarize yourself with the placement testing process

You will receive information about registering a proctor and the format of your placement test once your application is submitted. Your placement test will be due July 6, 2015 at 11:59 PM (Pacific).

Students should not think of placement exams as tests they will pass or fail. Rather, students should demonstrate their actual level in a subject without extensive preparation. Most placement tests are designed to be taken before a student has finished his or her current course; instructors are aware that students have not often mastered all course material.
