All degree-seeking students and/or students planning to enroll in a math or English course must have ACT/SAT or Lake Land College placement test scores on file. Placement testing offers an opportunity to improve course placement and save money. Students will be mandatorily placed in appropriate courses based on placement test or ACT/SAT scores, whichever is higher.
If a student’s record includes more than one set of scores, the highest scores recorded are used for placement. One retest is allowed in each of the three areas with a retest fee of $5.00 per test – limit of two sets of scores within a four-year period.
To schedule a test or for more information, call 217-234-5301 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students are encouraged to review the placement test study guide. Students who have a documented disability can make arrangements for test accommodations by contacting the Office of Student Accommodations at 217-234-5259.
To determine placement in reading, English and math, match your score on the ACT/SAT or LLC placement test with the appropriate range of scores below. Counselors will review this information with you at your orientation/advising appointment. To discuss your placement scores or for additional information regarding degree requirements, please call Counseling Services at 217-234-5232.
If placement test scores require enrollment in a reading course, students must enroll in the required course for their first semester at Lake Land College.
College credit is given for examinations taken through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) if satisfactory scores are achieved. CLEP examinations are based on college level subject material. If you participate in these programs, you must request that the results be forwarded to the Lake Land College Admissions and Records Office. You should be aware that CLEP credits may not be accepted as transfer credit at other colleges or universities.
The following grid shows the minimum credit granting scores and how credit is granted.
Students desiring to take these tests may obtain information by contacting the Director of the Tutoring and Testing Center at 217-234-5287.
