Placement Testing

To schedule a placement test, currently enrolled LCN students should contact their academic advisor and request that a Placement Test Authorization form be sent to the Testing Center. Prospective students should request the Admissions Office to submit the form. Students should then contact the Testing Center in room 106A to schedule a testing appointment.
