Preparing for the Placement Test

Lakeland wants to help you do your very best on the placement test. Getting a better score will mean taking fewer college classes and graduating sooner, saving you time and money as you begin your college journey.

Writing and math placement tests are required for students who do not have college-ready ACT/SAT scores or official transcripts with qualifying college credit.

When taking advantage of the resources below, please keep in mind that Lakeland Community College currently utilizes the Next-Generation ACCUPLACER placement test.

Virtual Test Prep Workshops Are Available!
