Assessment, Advisement & Orientation Assessment, Advisement & Orientation
 

In order to ensure a successful transition into the college, students should accomplish these steps as soon as possible: orientation, advisement & assessment.

 

1. Orientation - Complete at your own pace online.

Progress can be saved while working through the modules; pass the final quiz with at least 7 out of 10 correct to meet the requirement. Or take one of the three Guidance courses that satisfy the Orientation requirement to qualify for priority enrollment. 

2. Advisement

By meeting with a Counselor before enrolling, a first semester plan based on your educational goal(s) and assessed abilities not only sets you up for success, but  gives you priority enrollment for the next semester. Contact the Counseling Desk at (209) 588-5109 to make an appointment to meet with a Counselor.

3. Placement 

Columbia College utilizes placement measures that include high school performance (when transcripts are available) to maximize the probability that students will enter and complete college-level coursework in math and English within a one-year time frame. A Counselor uses relevant coursework, grades, cumulative grade point average, and discussion with the student to inform placement into math and English coursework

ACCUPLACER test scores are no longer included in making placement decisions for Columbia College students. 

Advisement & Placement (2. + 3. Combined) 

Students can also bring unofficial high school and college transcripts to Advisement & Placement events offered periodically throughout the year.
