AB 705 Information
Welcome to the Pierce College AB 705 Update Information Page
Assembly Bill (AB) 705 is a bill signed by the Governor on October 13, 2017. The bill requires that a community college district or college maximize the probability that a student will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in English and math within a one-year timeframe and use, in the placement of students into English and math courses, one or more of the following: high school coursework, high school grades, and high school grade point average.
California law AB 705 represents a significant change in the way students are placed. Students may be eligible to enroll in transfer-level math or English classes, or transfer-level courses with additional support.
