Math Placement via High School Transcript

NOTE: Due to impacts of COVID-19, we will not be able to determine placement using Spring 2020 grades. In order to determine math placement, you will need to complete the ACCUPLACER assessment.

Cascadia College offers various ways to place into Math courses including using high school transcripts. This is available for students who earned grades in Mathematics courses in public high schools within Washington State within the last two years.

General notes:

  • Students may opt to register for any math class lower than their placement.
  • Students need to consult with an academic advisor after placement to be sure to enroll in a course that is consistent with their planned course of study.

Public High Schools from Washington state:

  • If the high school course is conducted over two semesters, the second semester grade is used for placement purposes.
  • Transcripts can only be used for placement if the high school course was completed less than two years prior to placement. Moreover, the college math course must be taken no more than two school years after the completion of the high school course.
  • Spring 2020 high school grades are not eligible for use in placement due to the pandemic and its impact on high school grading practices.
  • Students who earn grades of “P” or “pass/fail” cannot use their high school transcripts for placement. These students should take the Accuplacer placement test for accurate placement.
  • Students who place into Math& 152 (Calculus 2) will not have Math& 151 (Calculus 1) on their college transcript (unless they have earned credit from the AP exam). These students should make sure their program of study does not require that they show Math& 151 (Calculus 1) on their transcript.

Private and out-of-state high schools and homeschools:

  • Homeschooled students need to take the Accuplacer placement test to assess where they should begin taking mathematics courses. Transcripts made by home-based instruction cannot be used for placement.
  • Students who attended high school outside of Washington state or private high schools in Washington state will need to take the Accuplacer placement test to assess where they should begin taking mathematics courses.

Please submit a copy of your high school transcript to admissions@cascadia.edu or to the Kodiak Corner. It is helpful to bring a copy with you to your CORE appointment. Students who have earned lower than a C in their last math class must have placement determined in another way such as the Accuplacer placement. 

The tables below are for placement only. Credit may be granted by AP or IB exam scores. See the Transfer Credit webpage or college catalog for more details.
