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. Students will be mandatorily placed in appropriate courses based on placement test scores or ACT/SAT scores, whichever is higher, and chosen program of study. 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 who have a documented disability can make arrangements for test accommodations by contacting the Office of Student Accommodations at 217-234-5259.
Placement testing is high stakes. Students are encouraged to review the placement test study guide in order to prepare for the test. The study guide can be downloaded below.
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.
