Continuing ELMS Courses

Assembly Bill 705 (also known as AB 705), allows students more flexibility for taking EMLS courses at different levels of EMLS. If you feel comfortable continuing in the EMLS level you are in now, you don't need to do anything differently; you can stay at that level and continue to complete EMLS courses to advance to the next level in the EMLS pathway.

If you prefer to take courses at higher levels of instruction, you can take the EMLS Guided Self-Placement. After you complete the EMLS Guided Self-Placement, you will be free to enroll in any EMLS courses you wish to take.

Using High School Records

If you are currently in the 12th grade or graduated from high school within the last 10 years, you have the option to use your high school records.

To see your English placement results, log in to your Student Portal. An English placement allows you to take English 1A or EMLS 10 (see how your English placement is calculated).

If you need help deciding whether to use your high school records or take the EMLS Guided Self-Placement, please meet with an academic counselor.
