English Eligibility  If you are a transfer student from a California community college, UC, or state university, take your transcript to the Matriculation Office, Conlan Hall 204 or call 239-3751.  Please review these instructions.

If you need courses evaluated from any out of state or private college, you will need to bring a copy of your official transcript (online transcripts not accepted), a course description from the college catalog, and syllabi (if possible). Some issues may require an interview to determine equivalency.

The English Eligibility Exam has been indefinitely suspended by the English Department while we pilot new forms of assessment and re-placement. Instead, consider taking or re-taking the English Placement Test (EPT); there are new rules for re-taking the EPT, so be sure to check whether you are eligible.
