    Assessment

    Placement levels (and sometimes, prerequisite courses) are required in order to register for classes. There are a few ways you can establish levels:

    1. a. Upload your unofficial college transcript with our waiver. LCC also accepts SAT/ACT scores and high school GPA (within 3 years). Upload any or all of these documents through our waiver.
    2. b. If you are not able to access any of the above documents, you can take our placement tests.

    Transfer Credit

    If you are planning to earn a degree or certificate at LCC you should have your previous college send your official college credit to LCC. Once LCC receives this, we will assess it for any official transfer credit. This can take up to 4-6 weeks.

    Orientation/Advising

    As a transfer/guest student, orientation is not required. You are welcome to attend a session if you would like!

    Your next step is to see an Academic Advisor* to plan out your courses. Check out advising options (including appointments, drop ins, and online advising).

    *If possible, bring a copy of your unofficial transcript to refer to when meeting with an advisor.
