We want you to be successful in your classes, so you will need to take an academic placement assessment to determine the classes to start with at LTC. ACCUPLACER is the placement assessment that LTC administers. ACT scores are also accepted. Scores are valid for three years or retesting is needed. There are a few circumstances that may waive this requirement, so please see Admissions for waiver information.
Click here for a description of the test and sample questions. (Please note: The online sample questions cover all areas of the ACCUPLACER; LTC generally tests three areas: Sentence Skills, Reading Comprehension, and Arithmetic. A few programs also test Elementary Algebra; please check individual programs for requirements).
