​​Math Placement 

​For students 10th ​​grade and below: 

Students who are in 10th grade have to respond to a writing prompt and bring to a Shasta College counselor so the counselor can assess and place students in the appropriate English courses.

Students should also bring unofficial transcripts with them when meeting with a counselor. 

Please note students 10th grade and below who are wishing to take a transfer-level English course are required to have a cumulative gpa of 3.5 in addition to the writing prompt requirement.

For students 8th grade and below:

Please note students are considered 8th grade until their first semester grades of their freshman (9th grade) year have been posted. 

Students who are 8th grade and below who wish to enroll in English, or in a class with English as a prerequisite, need to schedule a meeting with themselves, their parent and the Associate VP of Student Services or designee to determine course placement.
