In order to be placed by a Washington State High School transcript, the math class used for placement must have endedwithin the time-periods shown below of when the student is seeking placement.

KEEP IN MIND:

  • You can register for any math class lower than your placement.
  • If you took a two-semester course, please use the lower of the two grades when figuring out placement, with an exception for Bridge-College Mathematics, as noted below.
  • If you place into MATH& 152, you will not have MATH& 151 on your Shoreline transcript (unless you submit your official AP scores for credit). Check with an advisor about whether your program of study requires MATH& 151.
