Assessment Testing

English Assessment

It is our core belief at Foothill College that all students can succeed given the right level support. All students are eligible to access transfer-level English composition regardless of your educational back ground or native language. Based on student's needs, Foothill offers four options of transfer-level English Composition & Reading.

ENGL 1A Honors - Composition & Reading Honors (5 units)

ENGL 1A - Composition & Reading (5 units)

ENGL 1A (5 units) + ENGL 246A (2 units) - Composition & Reading plus co-requisite support course

English 1S (4 units) + ENGL 242A (1 unit) - Integrated Composition & Reading

 How You are Placed

Placement into English Composition is based on high school transcript evaluation or guided self-placement.

  • If you are a domestic student or your high school used an American style 4.0 scale grade point average (GPA) grading system, email or drop off an unofficial copy of your high school transcripts to the Testing and Assessment Center (Rm 8212) for evaulation.
  • If you did not go to high school in the United States, never attended high school anywhere, or your high school transcripts are unavailable. Come to the Testing and Assessment Center to complete a guided self-placement for English.
  • If you have transfer credit from another college/university or Advanced Placement (AP) scores please complete a Prerequisite Clearance Form.
