Placement is an important step along the path to academic success.  It is the process of matching your educational and career goals to the appropriate courses and ensuring you are academically prepared.  High school transcripts and other measures may be used in determining your placement.  In accordance with AB 705, no assessment test is needed and all students have the right to access transfer-level classes!  Click HERE to learn more about AB 705 and what it means for students and click HERE to review placement results at FRC.

Determine the best education program to reach your career goal.

Feather River College offers several degree and certificate options:

  • Certificate programs include job specific training without general education classes.  Many certificate programs do not require math or English and therefore placement is not necessary.  Please check the FRC catalog for specific program requirements.
  • An associate degree requires major classes along with general education classes which include transfer-level math and English.  

Feather River College offers transfer-level math and English classes along with support workshop classes for many of the ENGL 101 Composition & Reading, Math 110 College Algebra and MATH 202 Elementary Statistics sections.  These workshop classes can help a student succeed in their initial transfer-level course work.  Academic Advisors and Counselors recommend enrollment in the workshop classes based on high school G.P.A. or guided self-placement. 

Career assessments and information can be found at the Career Exploration page. Additional information regarding career employment and earnings can be found on the Academic Program pages.
