When will AB 705 take effect?
AB 705 is legislation intended to support assessment and placement strategies proven to increase student completion rates and close the achievement gap by requiring colleges to consider a student's high school coursework and GPA as primary determining factors for placement. A broad group of stakeholders are working to make high school data the primary predictor of readiness for college-level coursework for all students by spring 2019.
The California Community Colleges have issued the following guidance to colleges about implementing AB 705.
