English, Math & ESL Placement 

Placement and Assessment Services is here to assist with the placement process for English, Math, and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. 

You must apply to the college and receive a Mission College student ID number before you use these tools to receive your placements. Once you receive your placement you will need to log into My Mission Portal and register.

All degree and transfer seeking students should complete the English/Math Placement Assistance Tool prior to registration.  Any student seeking to enroll in transfer-level Math or English must complete the tool.  Completion of the tool also satisfies one requirement to earn priority registration status for students.
