Important Notice: This chart is for reference only.  Be sure to work with your Counselor to determine which math courses are best for your intended degree. Students who do not meet the criteria to enroll in an single transfer level math course are required to add a 2 unit support course as seen on the chart below (e.g. Math 145 is the support course for Math 045). To determine if a non-transferable math course is a good fit for you, please see your Counselor.

West Hills College Coalinga

The new California law (AB 705) has changed how West Hills College Coalinga gives initial English and math placement. Part of the law extends students that have been placed into basic (remedial) level math and English courses from past assessment exams. Using the placement table below, high school performance will be used to place students in appropriate level English and math courses.  Additional measures like Guided Self-Placement will be utilized to maximize student placement.  It is strongly recommended that students meet with a counselor to discuss placement recommendations.  This ensures course selection is based on student's educational goal.

Statistics: Math-025 (Transfer Level) | NC-202 (Co-Requisite Support)
STEM: Math-015 (Transfer Level) | NC 203 (Co-Requisite Support)
Teacher Prep: Math-010A (Transfer Level) | NC 201 (Co-Requisite Support)
Liberal Arts: Math-045 (Transfer Level) | NC 201 (Co-Requisite Support)
