Placement Document Submission Form

LCC uses the Accuplacer Reading Test and WritePlacer Essay. Math has three potential tests, review the one that reflects your highest previously learned concepts (if you know the math course you plan to take, check the required test and score here.) ESOL placement is based on ESL Reading, Language Usage, and Listening tests (not Sentence Meaning).

Placement testing is available on a walk-in basis at LCC's Downtown Campus, West Campus, and East Campus. Livingston County Center in Howell requires an appointment (see hours and location info below). A picture ID is required to test.

If not in the Mid-Michigan area, you may be able to test at an Accuplacer test center near you.  Contact us with a location for next steps.
