Math Transfer Agreement


K12 Partnerships | Core Team | Data | Common Core State Standards | Smarter Balanced Assessment

The grid below establishes a minimum placement level at LCC based on the grade earned in the last mathematics course completed at the high school. Please note that students will still need to take the placement exam at LCC for data purposes and to determine if their current skills and knowledge warrant a high level of placement.
