Assessment by HST

De Anza can assess a student's high school transcript (HST) for placement into the English and math course sequences. This is an optional service. 

De Anza's Assessment Model

We assess a student's English/ESL and Math knowledge and skills using your placement testing result and high school transcript (HST), if available. Upon assessment completion, students are receive placement(s) into into the appropriate  English Writing (EWRT) & English Reading (READ) course sequences or ESL course sequence and math course sequence.

How can I submit my high school transcript?

Students must have a placement test record on file before a high school transcript can be assessed.

It is recommended that recent high school graduates bring a copy of their high school transcript to their testing appointment.

High School Transcript Assessment for Placement Form

We accept both official and unofficial high school transcripts.

I don't have access to my high school transcript.

All community colleges are required to assess students for placement using multiple assessment tools.

At De Anza, we use a student's placement test results and high school transcript information to provide the student's assessment result.

Submission of a high school transcript (HST) for assessment is optional.

If you cannot submit your HST to De Anza, then your assessment results will be based on your placement test results only.
