  1. COURSE SEQUENCES

    The first step to selecting the appropriate courses for your first semester is to interpret and understand your test results. As part of your enrolling at Chaffey College, you complete the computerized assessment program called Accuplacer. At the end of your testing, you receive a printed copy of your results to use to select your first term courses. If you do not have a copy of your results go to the front desk of the Rancho Campus Counseling Department and request a copy or click here to order them online. You will still need to come to the Counseling Department, with a photo ID, to pick up your results.

    Your results provide you with suggested courses in Math and English. These courses have been suggested to you based on your performance on the assessmnet test and how you respond to questions regarding preparation from high school. Please take into account that your results are a reflection of your current operational skills in these areas. If it has been a long time since you have had to crunch fractions and decimals, read and comprehend text to answer questions related to your reading, or identify grammatical errors, your results will reflect your lack of current knowledge and understanding. This is not an evaluation of your previous training or education. You probably have had numerous classes in high school that covered this material; however, it has been a while since you have dealt in a direct manner with this subject matter. Also, consider the fact that, like most people, you did little to prepare for your assessment. To walk off the street and recall all math and English facts that you have not dealt with for some time, even if you recently graduated from high school, would take extraordinary memory capabilities. Your existing state of mind could have also impacted your ability to perform better than you expected. Many prospective students have distractions on their mind or are not in the best emotional or physical state of being. You may have anxiety that gets in the way of performing at your optimum level.

    So, be easy on yourself. Understand that assessments are to help you identify problem areas that need to be addressed or considered when selecting courses for your educational plan. When appropriate you will take the recommended courses to prepare you to handle college level courses that are part of your major and educational objectives. The following information outlines the course recommendations and their related course sequences. Related course sequences must be followed to bring you up to the appropriate level needed for you to accomplish your objectives.

    Two important words to add to your student vocabulary are prerequisite and corequisite. A prerequisite is a course that must be completed prior to enrolling in a desired course. A corequisite is a course that is required in the same semester to accompany a desired course. These two terms will come up regularly as you view your college catalog and schedule of classes.

    Another important consideration is whether or not a course can be counted towards graduation and/or be used to transfer to a 4-year college or university. Chaffey College uses a numbering system to distinguish courses that accomplish both of these objectives. In addition, the numbering system identifies courses that are remedial, college preparatory, and are not applicable to a degree or transfer.
