Multiple Measures


Cypress College allows incoming students to benefit from using Multiple Measures. This means that Cypress College uses many different ways to help improve a student’s English, English as a Second Language (ESL) and math course placements. Multiple Measures can include:

  • Assessment results from Cypress College and/or other California Community Colleges
    • Required for all First-Time students
  • High School Transcripts
  • Advanced Placement Exam results
  • California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP/EAP)
  • SAT scores for SAT Reading & Writing or ACT scores for ACT English

Students should make sure to bring copies of their documents when meeting with a counselor to take advantage of Multiple Measures. For more information about scheduling appointments with a counselor to ask more about multiple measures, you can contact the Counseling Center at 714-484-7015 or on the Second Floor of the Student Center on campus.

Assessment Exemptions

  • Incoming students may also use Alternative Assessments in order to satisfy the assessment verification requirement for priority registration. This applies if a student has completed lower division English or math. For more information, please refer to the Assessment Center Homepage.
