Step 2: Assessment 


ASSESSMENT helps you choose courses at the right level for you, making sure you don't end up with work that is to difficult or taking classes below your skill level.  Save time and money by testing into higher level  courses.

We offer Assessment testing at various times.  Review your skills in English or ESL and Math with sample tests and study resources in Module 5 Preparation of the West ExpressWay.

Frequented Asked Questions about the Assessment more 


Who is exempt from the Assessment test?

Exemptions from the Assessment Process are available to students who have completed:

  • An Associate Degree or higher
  • The appropriate pre-requisite course with a grade of “C” or better as documented on an Official Transcript.
  • An Assessment test placement results (not to exceed two years) from any college from Los Angeles Community College District. 

IF ANY OF THE ABOVE APPLY, Submit your transcripts along with a completed Prerequisite & Assessment Completion Form to

"Can I take any classes before I complete assessment and/or submit the Prerequisite & Assessment Completion Form?" YES. You can take any class that does not have a pre-requisite. But to ensure you don't waste time and money and that you have a high registration priority, complete the steps of Expressway as soon as possible.

Can I use UNOFFICIAL transcripts or other documentation instead of an official transcript when I submit the Prerequisite & Assessment Completion Form?" YES. Often unofficial transcripts or other documents will be accepted to clear a pre-requisite so that you can take a particular class. However, you will ultimately need to submit official transcripts if you want courses taken elsewhere to apply toward earning a certificate or degree.
