Community College

A community college is a publicly supported and locally oriented college that provides programs to: help you transfer to a four-year college, pursue career education programs, take remedial or "catch-up" programs, and offer coursework for cultural growth, life enrichment, and skills improvement.


Is a California Community College Right for you?

The California Community Colleges are one educational option among many. In California, some students apply to the University of California or the California State University or independent universities and colleges. The California Community Colleges, though, offer many students huge advantages through a greater variety of programs.

At a community college you can take classes to prepare you for college-level math and English, receive career training to get into the workforce quickly and affordably, and complete lower division courses that are transferable to a four-year college or university. A community college is a good choice for anyone who may want to attend a four-year school later but who is not yet academically, personally or economically ready to begin study at a university.

Early Assessment Program (EAP)

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) was established to provide opportunities for students to measure their readiness for college-level English and mathematics in their junior year of high school, and to facilitate the opportunities for them to improve their skills during their senior year.

When juniors take the California Standards Tests (CSTs) for English Language Arts and Algebra II or Summative High School Math, there will be a brief set of optional multiple-choice questions that are part of the EAP.

The EAP lets you know whether you are ready for college-level coursework in English and mathematics at the end of your junior year of high school. A significant benefit of the EAP is that students who have demonstrated proficiency for college-level coursework on the basis of their EAP results are exempt from taking the CSU and participating CCC placement tests for English and mathematics and move directly into college-level classes upon enrollment.

Click here to check if the Community College you're interested in accepts EAP results as a waiver to their college placement tests.
