Assessment for Placement
Reclaim Your Student Rights with AB 1705
Ensuring Equitable Placement, Support and Completion at California's Community Colleges
Assembly Bill (AB) 1705 is a bill signed by the Governor that requires California Community Colleges to maximize the probability that students will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in English and mathematics within one year, setting into motion changes that will severely restrict the ability of community colleges to offer remedial math and English courses.
AB 1705 builds off a 2017 law, that bill was brought forward amid research showing that students who took remedial math and English classes often got stuck in those classes and were less likely to finish their degrees.
