Skills Assessment

To ensure that students are ready for college and the workplace, LCC complies with Colorado Community College System policy (C.R.S. 23-1-113.3) which requires that new students demonstrate basic skill proficiencies in reading, writing, and mathematics.

The assessment requirement may be met through ACT, SAT, Accuplacer tests, or earning transfer credit at another institution. Most students must meet the assessment requirement including the following:

All first-time undergraduates who are degree-seeking or who convert to degree-seeking status
All first-time degree-seeking students (certificate students not meeting the cutoff scores are encouraged but not required to take advantage of the remedial services offered through the College)

Students whose assessment scores do not meet the minimum cutoff scores established by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE) are responsible for completing basic skills instruction during their first thirty (30) credit hours of attendance at the college.
