Student Success Center

Mission:

The Student Success Center provides study space and tutoring across disciplines to empower students to dream, to be organized, to learn, to persist, to have a plan, to innovate, and to never give up.

Free Online English and Math Placement Preparation
Coastline offers free online English and math placement test preparation! Before you take your English or math placement test, practice and prepare with us! Academies run year-round and are open-entry, which means you can join at practically any time. All work you do is self-paced and individualized. It is recommended that you plan to spend at least 2-3 hours per week for 3-4 weeks practicing before you take the actual placement test(s). For information on how to join the academy, please contact the Assessment Center at assessment@coastline.edu or (714) 241-6285.
