Placement Testing

Many courses at LCC have minimum skill level requirements in reading, writing, and/or mathematics.  These skill levels must be met before a student will be permitted to enroll in those courses.  One way students meet these skill prerequisites is by achieving the required scores on placement tests.

Placement test results also play a large role in determining both the level and number of required courses. It is important that you do your best.  You are encouraged to use the review materials listed below—both to refresh your knowledge and to become familiar with the question format.

DO YOU NEED TO TEST?
If you have completed the ACT or SAT
you may be able to waive placement testing and receive levels based on your score.  Click here for information on submitting test results for placement levels.
If you have previously attended college or have AP or CLEP scores, visit the Waiver Team Webpage to determine if you can waive the tests.
Veterans or military personnel may use ASVAB scores (or in some cases the Joint Services Transcript) to receive reading/writing levels. Click here for more information.
