Santiago Canyon College's (SCC) placement methods include the use of multiple measures whereby an overview of students' academic performance provides a means of course placement into transfer-level English, American College English (ACE)/English as a Second Language (ESL) and mathematics courses.  Placement recommendations are given to students who provide self-reported high school information, complete the Guided Self-Placement (GSP) modules or meet with a counselor. SCC’s ACE/ESL students take the Test for English Language Development (TELD) assessment and complete the ACE GSP for course recommendations.
