A Math and English assessment are required. If English is your second language, an ESL test will be provided for you. All you need to test is a valid photo ID (driver’s license, passport, or school ID) and your Los Rios student number. Check your college website for assessment testing times, rules, and study guides.
The purpose of these assessment tests is to help place you in classes that match your skill level so that you can be successful. Your college's counselors will use these test results, along with other criteria, to determine whether you are ready for specific courses and programs. There is no fee for these assessments.


Remember: You can only assess twice, therefore studying is imperative to get the best placement. If you are unhappy with your results a 30 day wait period must be observed before you can test again.
A valid photo ID (school or government issued) and your Los Rios student ID number are required for assessment.
