    Establish Placement Levels

    If you haven't already, it's time to upload your high school transcript, SAT or ACT scores, or AP Test scores so that we can help determine your starting place at LCC. If you are not able to get placement levels with these documents, don't worry. You can take our placement tests.

    You can check if you currently have levels in reading, writing, and math in the profile tab of your myLCC account.

    Upload documents, check testing hours and location, and view sample questions through the testing center website.
