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.


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

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