Important Notice

High School Students

         As an incoming student to Ohlone, you will need to take the self-guided placement for Math and English.
Even if your high school has approved the courses, you will still need to complete self-guided placement and/or meet the prerequisite requirements for some courses (Chemistry is an example).  Some courses will block you from registering if you don’t have a placement or haven’t been cleared of the prerequisites. The link to Orientation and Placement steps can be found HERE.
