Submit Your Transcript and Take the Placement Test

As a new student you are required to complete placement testing or provide documentation to qualify for exemptions before registering for classes.

Students who need to complete placement testing can do so remotely or at an LCCC location. If you are a recent high school graduate, review the list of testing exemptions to see if you qualify for a waiver. You can submit unofficial electronic copies of your transcript, report card or SAT/ACT scores to the Testing Center for exemptions.

Placement Testing

    • any documents you want us to review for exemptions, and

Note: Required Equipment- You must have a built-in webcam to take the placement tests remotely. Testing must be completed on a computer, laptop or Chromebook. You cannot take the test on your phone or on a MacBook.
