While all students receive placement recommendations upon completion of the Application for Admission, you are also able to receive and adjust placement recommendatios based on answering a set of questions regarding your comfort level with concepts and skills necessary for success in transfer level coursework. Self placement is not a test and placement recommendations are available immediately upon completing the online questionnaires.
Who should take the Guided Self-Placement
These self placement tools are intended for students who want to enroll in English and/or math courses. An assessment test is still required for placement into English as a Second Language courses.

It will take several minutes to complete each self placement tool and your responses will assist in guiding you toward the right course to support your educational goals. We strongly recommend that you meet with a counselor for course selection and educational planning. You can schedule a counseling appointment through your WebReg Student portal, by calling the office at (831) 646-4020. Counseling appointments are also available online.
Note: You must use your CCCID or MPC student ID number and a unique placement ID number in order to complete the guided self placement tool.
