What We Do

Assessment of your skills in mathematics and English helps you achieve your goals in college by placing you into classes in which you will be successful.

If you are a first time in any college student, with a goal of certificate, degree or transfer, you are required to be assessed in both math and English or English as a Second Language before registering for classes. English or Math testing may also be required for students seeking to meet a specific course prerequisite.

From the Assessment Help site you may access detailed information about completing Assessment at Santa Barbara City College, including SBCC's REAP Test Preparation FormFrequently Asked Questions, Alternatives to Testing, Sample Test Questions, Drop-In Testing Hours, ESL Assessment, Prerequisite Help, understanding your Test Results and information for Out-of-Area students.
