Students who took English and/or math at another college need to submit their official college transcript(s) to the Admissions and Records office for proper placement. Students with questions about their placement should meet with a counselor.
Students without high school data on the application receive the following placements, which provide access to transfer-level English and math:
- English 101+S (5 units) with support
Students may pick one of the following choices:
Transfer-level Statistics with support: Math 065 (2 units) plus Math 165 (4 units) -
open to all students
- Intermediate Algebra with support: Math 050 (3 units) plus Math 150 (5 units) -
for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) majors
Students interested in studying business or psychology should check with a counselor regarding selecting appropriate math courses.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
- International (F-1 visa) students need to contact the
International Student Center (ISC) to schedule taking the ESL Accuplacer test.
- Non-international ESL students need to contact the
Counseling and Advisement Center for a referral form to take the ESL Accuplacer test if assessment is determined to be required. Non-international ESL students are those students whose primary language at home is other than English and who require additional English language support to develop reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.

MUST complete orientation. Registration will be withheld from those students who do not complete orientation by the deadline date.
The deadline date for summer/fall applicants is October 31 and the deadline date for winter/spring applicants is June 30.
Please refer to the
Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) section for SSSP exemption criteria information and procedures for challenging matriculation regulatory provisions.
- Orientation is offered in several formats in which some orientation sessions include a Student Educational Plan (SEP). Orientation can be satisfied by participating in the following sessions:
- In-person orientation (recommended for new students; SEP included)
- Early Decision Day at Citrus College (only available through high school districts)
- New students who complete the orientation component, in addition to the student education plan, will earn an earlier registration date.
Meeting with a counselor/educational advisor is an important part of student success to help students achieve their course of study. The Student Educational Plan (SEP) lists courses that pertain to the identified course of study and is required for participation in many programs on campus. Check with the
Counseling and Advisement Center, or appropriate counseling office in which you are eligible to receive services, for available SEP services.
After completion of the
orientation, complete a SEP.
- If you have completed 15 or less college units, attend a Course Planning Session to create a one semester SEP.
- If you have 16 or more college units completed, make an appointment with a counselor to complete a SEP.
For the Course Planning Session schedule and to make an appointment, check out the
Counseling and Advisement Center online, call (626) 914-8530, or stop by the Counseling and Advisement Center (located on the second floor of the Student Services Building).
If you are eligible for specialty counseling services, inquire with the appropriate department for available SEP services. Failure to complete a SEP will result in a lower registration appointment.
