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:
- Take the math placement test and earn a score that places you in college-level mathematics.
- 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.
- Use the math agreement and if you receive the qualifying grade at your high school,
you can take a college level course.
- Earn a score of 3 or 4 on the math portion of the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC).
