FAQ for High School Counselors
9th - 11th Grade
Students who are currently in the 9th – 11th grade and wish to take math, or a course with a math prerequisite will need to report their current High School Records. 9th, 10th, and 11th grade dual-enrolled students must report their information each year in order to receive a placement that reflects their current high school records and math background. A student's math placement will expire at the end of their 9th, 10th and 11th grade years allowing an opportunity for the information to be refreshed.
Students who are currently in the 9th – 11th grade and wish to take English, or a course with an English prerequisite, will need to do the Guided Self-Placement. The guided self-placement activities will allow students to enroll in English 1A and all other lower level courses.
Students who are currently in the 12th grade will use their completed 11th grade high school records to place into a Transfer level English and math class.
Most students who have completed 11th grade will receive an automatic placement in English and Math once they apply to SRJC. If you do not see a placement result in your SRJC Portal or find that your reported high school GPA or math coursework is wrong, you will need to update your high school records.
Did you check your SRJC Portal Placement Results and see that your GPA will be increased by the end of 12th grade or that your math coursework needs updating?
Twelfth grade students who are still completing Algebra 2, Integrated Math 3 or Pre-Calculus should update their high school records once spring semester concludes.
Below are scenarios where an increase GPA or math coursework would change your placement:
- A previously reported lower GPA increases above 1.9. This increase changes English placement.
- A previously reported lower GPA increases above 2.9 and you did not complete a year of Algebra 2 or Integrated Math 3 with a C grade or above. This increase changes Math placement. Note: If you already reported completion of Algebra 2 or Integrated Math 3, then your placement is not affected by a GPA change.
- Since your 11th grade reported coursework, you have completed Algebra 2, Integrated Math 3 or Pre-Calculus with a C grade or above. Note: Records cannot be updated until a full year of math coursework is successfully completed, not midterm.
