Out-of-the-area START Proctor Request

The START test is no longer the only tool to determine your math and English placement at Allan Hancock College. You can be placed in math and English classes based on multiple measures including your performance in high school. This means, there is an opportunity to shorten your time to graduate and/or transfer. Aside from viewing your high school performance, here are a few examples of other options for placement:

Do my START Scores give me the highest placement in English and Math?
Placement will be determined by whichever option yields the highest placement, i.e., high school coursework or START test results. START testing will not be needed for priority registration as prior high school courses will be used in lieu of the testing option if properly reported on the CCCApply application and a student has graduated within the last ten years. 

Many factors can affect a student’s decision to use START test scores for placement in English and Math:

  • Students may believe their high school coursework and grades are not indicative of their abilities and could potentially improve their placement.
  • Students may be returning to school after a long educational absence and believe their high school course knowledge would not apply to them at this time.
  • Students will not be at a disadvantage if they do decide to take the START test as the higher placement between the test and high school coursework will be used for course selection
