High school students: here is how you can move into the highest possible level of Math at LCC!

Lower Columbia College maintains agreements with high schools in Cowlitz, Columbia, and Wahkiakum Counties regarding Math placement for current high school students and recent high school graduates.

These agreements ensure that students who meet established course and grading criteria can move into the highest possible level of math at LCC.

Math Transfer Agreement can save you hundreds of dollars in tuition!

High School Transfer Grids:

Grids outline minimum Math placement at LCC based on the grade earned in the most recent Math course completed in high school.

  3. Locate the top row of the Transfer Grid and match it to the last math course that you completed at your high school. Note: The math course must have been completed in the last two years.
  4. Next, locate the left-most column on the Transfer Grid and match it to the grade that you received in the final term of your high school math course.
    Note: 2nd term grades determine actual placement. First term grades may be used for provisional placement.
  5. Match up the high school course at the top of the Transfer Grid with the grade on the left of the Transfer Grid to determine the Lower Columbia College Math course that you are eligible for. Note: Non-STEM math course options include:
