CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) & EAP (Early Assessment Program)

Math courses — “Conditional” or “Standard Met”

If your EAP Math status is: “Ready for CSU or participating CCC college-level Math courses — Conditional” or CAASPP Math status is: “Standard Met,” please read the instructions below.

NOTE: For this “Conditional” or “Standard Met” status, students should submit the Alternative Assessment Petition Form, CAASPP/EAP score report, and final high school transcripts only after completing their 12th grade year (and after final grades have posted to the transcript).  Qualifying students may be exempted from additional placement testing in Math at Fullerton College. To qualify for a Math placement exemption, you must:

  • Have an application on file with Fullerton College
  • Complete a full-year, approved Math course at your high school during your 12th grade year, and earn a minimum grade of “C” for each semester. Examples of eligible classes are: Trigonometry / Math Analysis, Pre-calculus, Calculus, AP Calculus (AB or BC), AP Statistics, AP Physics or any other year long high school math course that requires Algebra 2 as a prerequisite

Terms of the Math placement exemption are:

  • Eligible students may not need to take the Fullerton College Math assessment test. Students who have completed and passed advanced math courses in high school (e.g. trig, pre-calculus, calculus, etc.) and who intend to pursue a major that would require advanced, college-level math may still need to take the Fullerton College math assessment test in order to be placed directly into MATH 150A (Calculus),
  • Students not seeking direct placement into a calculus (MATH 150AF) or higher level course can receive clearance to enroll in one or more of the following: MATH 100 F, 120 F, 129 F, 141 F, 142 F,
  • Students will receive “clearance” to enroll in only the Fullerton College Math courses identified in their meeting with a counselor (the clearance will not apply to MATH courses taught at Cypress College), once the petition has been processed.
    • Please note, “clearance” to enroll in a Math course does not guarantee that a seat in the class will be available.
    • Clearances are valid for two years. Students who are not able to enroll in the class are strongly encouraged to keep trying in every subsequent term until they are able to take the class.
  • Students may still need to take the English and/or Reading assessment (and Chemistry assessment — if planning to take CHEM 111AF).

Required documents:

  1. A copy of your CAASPP/EAP testing results,
  2. A completed Alternative Assessment Petition Form (click here)
  3. A copy of your final high school transcripts, including courses and grades from your 12th grade year.
