Pasadena City College is pleased to inform you that we are improving the way students are placed into English and Math classes to increase student success.  Students will be placed into English and Math classes based on High School GPA and Grades.  When you apply for admission to PCC, your information will be collected to determine your English and Math course placement.  Your course placements will be discussed during your counseling session.  If you have questions please speak with the Counseling Office at 626-585-7251.        

  • ESL Course Placement:  If you would like to take an ESL course, the ESL placement exam is required. 
  • Students that have been out of school for over 10 years please visit the Prerequisite Office in Building L Room 103 D for English and Math course clearance.
