To qualify for the AA/AS Degree, students must meet a number of
requirements. One of these is mandated by California state law and
requires a student to demonstrate competency in the following areas:
- Written Expression
Students may fulfill the requirements of the law and demonstrate
competency in each of these areas by either:
- Satisfactorily completing a minimum grade of “C”
for each of these areas.
- Achieving a satisfactory score on the equivalency examination
for each of the areas.
In order for a student to take the Equivalency Exam, they must
have a referral (referral for testing card) from
a counselor (L104). At the time of testing, students must provide
a current government issued photo ID (Drivers license, DMV card,
passport, green card) and signature verification. Students who cannot
establish positive identity will not be permitted to take the equivalency
exam. Stop by Assessment Services to arrange a testing time.
Test results will be mailed within one week to the student, the
referring counselor and the records office. Upon approval of the
College Petitions Committee, the student may repeat the same Equivalency
Exam after a period of at least two weeks between subsequent test
