Placement & CLEP Testing

Placement Testing

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.

Placement testing can be conducted in-person or via Examity, ACCUPLACER’s approved online remote live testing service. To utilize Examity, specific technology requirements must be met. It is not possible to test remotely on tablets, cell phones, or on computers that do not meet requirements.

To schedule a test or for more information, call 217-234-5301 or email tutoringandtesting@lakelandcollege.edu.
