All degree-seeking students and/or students planning to enroll in a math or English course must have ACT or Lake Land College placement test scores on file. Students will be mandatorily placed in appropriate courses based on placement test scores. The scores indicate areas of strength and areas which need improvement and will be used to place students into the correct English, math, and/or reading course. Preparation for these tests can include a review of math skills from basic computation through Calculus, a review of English grammar and usage, and practice in reading comprehension and vocabulary skills. Listed below are some suggested web sites to assist students in this review process.
