Good news! We have a new course placement process for math and English.

Many students will no longer have to take a test to enroll in math or English classes at College of Marin. With the new AB 705 legislation, California Community Colleges now use high school GPA and guided self-placement to help students select their math and English classes. However, the best way to select the right class is to see a counselor. A counselor will help you determine the best choice for your individualized educational goal.

    (NOTE:  The CELSA is currently on hold due to COVID)

  •  ESL Guided Self-Placement Tool
     You need your M00# to use the tool.

  •  Counselor and/or Instructor recommendation
