Step 4: Preregistration Information

College in the High School (CHS) courses may have a required placement prerequisite. For CHS program purposes, the placement prerequisite is an achievement level or class placement level in reading, and/or writing, and/or mathematics. Students can meet the placement prerequisites by using their Smarter Balanced Assessment Score Report if they have completed the SBA. You may be asked to provide the college with a high school transcript  to meet certain placement and prerequisite requirements. Students who have not taken the SBA may need to take a placement test for math.
