START Retest Policy

RETEST POLICY 

All students may retake the START placement test once under the following conditions:

  1. At least two weeks have passed since the first test (to allow for extra study and preparation),  AND
  2. The original test scores are within 5 points of reaching the next placement level of math, English, and/or ESL.

If students do not meet the conditions, a matriculation appeal may be filed in the counseling office.

Testing Recency

Accuplacer test scores for English, reading, and ESL placement do not expire, and students are not required to reassess. For math placement, a student's Accuplacer test scores are valid for a period of three years. If a student does not enroll in a credit math course within three years from their initial assessment, the student is referred to reassess for math placement. The only exception to this recency requirement is students who earned a grade of "C-" or better in high school geometry may use their high school transcript for prerequisite clearance of geometry with no time limit.

"My experience in Allan Hancock College's Fire Academy was phenomenal. I received a top-notch education from experienced instructors who were dedicated to training the next generation of firefighters. The hands-on training we received in the college's state-of-the-art facility was an amazing opportunity and prepared me for my current job as a firefighter for the Atascadero department of fire and emergency services."
