Lansing Community College

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.

Placement testing is done on a walk-in basis, no appointment is necessary. You must have picture ID to test. Please contact Testing Services at 517-267-5500 with any questions about placement testing.

Do You Need to Test?

You may be able to waive the placement tests if you have any of the following:

  • A high school diploma (or final term) within the previous 10 years or GED within the previous 3 years
  • Scores on the SAT, ACT, AP, CLEP, or ASVAB tests
  • Completed college-level courses
