Placement Test Clearances

​Students who have completed any of the following may be cleared from taking the placement test at Orange Coast College. To begin the process of clearance, please fill out this form, attach the proper proof (i.e. test scores, transcripts), and submit it to the Clearance Office located on the first floor of Watson Hall, in the Assessment Center, room 110 . You can do this by bringing ​the form in person, scanning and emailing it to OCCClearance@occ.cccd.edu, or faxing it to (714) 432-5008. Processing of Clearance Forms may take up to 10 business days as all forms must be processed in the order they are received. As such, we encourage students to submit Clearance Forms well in advance of their registration date.

Please note: students who have been cleared using one of the four items below do NOT have to take the placement test for that subject and will NOT lose priority registration for failing to take the test.

  1. Other Community College Placement Test Results. Students who have taken a placement test at an accredited Community College (including OCC) within the last two years (excludes ESL).
  2. AP Scores. Students who have received a score of "3" or above on an AP Calculus AB or BC exam. Likewise, students who have received a score of "3" or above on an AP English Literature or English Language and Composition exam.
  3. Successful Completion of Courses. Students who have successfully completed an English or math course from an accredited college or university that is considered equivalent at Orange Coast College.
  4. CSU Early Assessment Program (EAP) Results. Students who have taken an Early Assessment Program (EAP) test and received a "Ready" status for CSU English and/or CSU Math. Please be aware that Orange Coast College does not accept the "conditional" status or completion of the ERWC course.
