Lansing Community College

All LCC students are required to meet individual course pre-requisites before they can register. The waiver form above can be used to obtain placement levels in Reading, Writing, and Math; or to receive a pre-requisite override based off of previous college-level coursework. This form can also be used to waive new student orientation. LCC does not require orientation for transfer and guest students.

To receive college-credit for a course you must have your official college transcript sent from your previous institution. The waiver process does not grant credit. Visit the Transfer Equivalencies page for more information.

Use the form below to submit these documents (unofficial is ok, but it must include your full name and test date):

  • Degree or college transcript
  • High school transcript or GED (within 3 years from graduation or test date)
  • SAT, ACT, ASVAB, AP, or CLEP test scores

Process time is one to three business days.

Assessment, Pre-Requisite, And Orientation Waiver Form

 

If you do not have access to a copy of your high school transcript or grade report, go to the Parchment website. On the final form waive the FERPA statement and check the box to authorize a copy to be stored in your account.

General Information on course prerequisites and overrides

Prerequisites may be a combination of Reading, Writing, or Math Levels; or they may also include a different course or courses to be taken first. Course prerequisites are listed underneath each course title in the course schedule book or in Banner.  Fill out your intended course in the form if it requires an override.

A completed degree or passing grade(s) in college-level English or mathematics coursework fulfill the requirements for many entry level courses. Some math courses require that the prerequisite math course was completed within the previous two years.  Non-math courses do not follow the two-year rule.  Additional college-level courses may grant reading and/or writing levels.

Requests for prerequisite overrides using a course that is still in progress (without a final grade) will be forwarded to the academic department for review and follow-up.
