Qualifying for Math

LCC is operating - we're just doing things differently.

LCC will continue to operate remotely until further notice (a list of face-to-face and hybrid classes for fall is now available). Medical Assisting, Nursing, Machining and Welding resumed limited lab activity on May 5. Applications for emergency funding assistance are still being accepted. - Learn More.

Qualifying for Math


Follow one of the steps below to qualify to take a math class:

Those who are working towards a transfer degree at LCC will need to take a quantitative skills course (a math based class) to graduate.

All quantitative skills courses have a prerequisite that requires you to have mastery of intermediate algebra, which is demonstrated through completion of MATH 99 with a grade of C or better.

There are four ways that you can meet this pre-requisite:

  1. Take the math placement test and earn a score that places you in college-level mathematics.
  2. Take the placement test and if you place below MATH 099, begin taking pre-college math courses and work your way through MATH 099. Pre-college math courses are not covered by the Running Start program.
  3. Use the math agreement and if you receive the qualifying grade at your high school, you can take a college level course.
  4. Earn a score of 3 or 4 on the math portion of the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC).
