If LCC (or any community college) is on your list of potential schools or training programs, you’ll need to take some placement tests.  Just as the name implies, these tests determine into which classes you’ll initially be placed at LCC. Your scores should pre-qualify you for classes that are neither too difficult nor too easy. Like Goldilocks’s porridge, you’ll place into classes that are “just right.”  The thing is, if you scores are low, you may be required to take classes designed to bring your reading, writing and math skills up to college levels before you can start taking freshman-level courses — and those classes may not be eligible for financial student aide. YOU’LL WANT TO DO YOUR BEST AND PREPARE AHEAD OF TIME.  People who practice ahead of time can raise their scores an average of TWO course levels.  This could save you hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars!

We will be offering both the LCC and LBCC Placement Exams here at EHS on Tuesday, April 7 2015 and again on Tuesday, May 19 2015 from 3:30 – 6:00 p.m. in Computer Lab 10.  Listen to the Morning Announcements for how to sign-up, right after Spring Break.

See Mrs. Haas with questions.
