Placement Scores

Placement Matrix: English

English placement at LCCC can be determined by:

  • Final high school cumulative GPA (within the past five years)* OR
  • Reading & English ACT scores (within the past five years) OR 
  • Reading & Writing Scores on the McCann College Success Exam OR
  • Previously earned college credit (subject to transcript evaluation the Office of the Registrar)

*Current high school seniors can submit an unofficial high school transcript with their first semester grades to be considered for placement prior to graduation.

English placement is determined by combined reading/writing scores. Find the reading score, then the corresponding writing score. Placement is based on ACT OR McCann—tests cannot be combined.

Students who are not placed into college-level coursework via GPA or ACT scores (or previously earned college credit) should take the ALEKS Exam for placement. ALEKS offers an initial assessment that can be completed at home and Prep and Learning Modules to refresh lost knowledge.  To begin the ALEKS testing process, you must have a completed application file.  After your LCCC admissions application and transcripts have been processed, your student EaglesEye account will be created.  Once you are logged into your EaglesEye account, click on the placement link, which will direct you to specifics about taking the ALEKS practice test and review.  You must wait 24 hours and do at least three hours of review before you can come to the Testing Center and take a placement test.


Students should discuss scores with their advisor to ensure proper placement has been met. Placement test scores must be received and entered in the student file prior to course registration.
