Satisfy My Placement

To fulfill the placement step, you may complete one of the following after submitting official AP scores to A&R:

1. Submit a Prerequisite Equivalency Form for English or math. Use this step if the AP credit is considered equivalent to the pre-requisite course. You may view the course equivalency awarded by SRJC on the AP chart. Once reviewed and approved by the department chair you will then be able to register for the class requiring a math and/or English as a prerequisite.

2. Submit an official transcript evaluation request indicating the AP score report as part of your transfer credit evaluation.

3. Submit a Pre-requisite Challenge Form for a math or English prerequisite using AP math or English scores. Use this step if the AP credit is not considered equivalent to the pre-requisite course. Once reviewed and approved by the department chair you will then be able to register for the class requiring a math and/or English as a prerequisite.

Note: A passing AP score in math or English may satisfy a math or English GE or major requirement. Review the AP chart to view how credit is awarded by SRJC, CSUs, and UCs. For CSUs and UCs, the chart only displays credit for GE and elective credit. Credit for a major must be determined by researching each university.
