Step 4: Place into the Right Classes
Using High School Records for Placement
- Graduated from a US high school within the last ten years
- Included all of the requested information about your high school records on your college application
You can view your placement results in your eServices account. From your eServices dashboard, click on the Academic Records tile, then Placements.
Submit Your High School Records for Placement
If you graduated from a US high school within the last ten years, but you did not report your high school information on your application, then you can email your unofficial high school transcripts to FLC’s Welcome & Student Success Center at: FLC-WelcomeCenter@flc.losrios.edu to receive your English and math course placements. Alternatively, you can drop off your transcripts to the Welcome & Student Success Center in Aspen Hall/FL1 at the Main Folsom campus.
Use College Records for Placement
If you attended another college (outside of Los Rios), then you can provide college transcripts showing that you passed certain classes. Additional forms may be necessary depending on the college and course.
Use Guided Self-Placement
If you have been out of high school for more than 10 years, have foreign high school transcripts, or left high school without graduating, then you should use the guided self-placement process to figure out what English and math courses to take. Please contact the Placement Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 608-6573, or see a counselor to obtain the guided self-placement link. After completing guided self-placement, your placements will be updated in our enrollment system overnight.
Placement for Advanced Education Students
As part of the Advanced Education approval process, you will be submitting your current unofficial high school transcript with your Advanced Education Application. If you plan to enroll in a math class, English class, or a class which has an English or math prerequisite, your high school transcript will be routed to the Placement Office in order to receive your English and math placements. You will be notified by Admissions & Records if your placement is not sufficient for enrollment into the desired class(es).
English as a Second Language (ESL) Assessment
If you are still learning English, then you can take an ESL assessment test, which will place you in an ESL class that matches your skill level. See the Assessment Testing webpage for testing calendars, sample tests, and study suggestions.
