Begin your successful academic journey
Most students who are new to Lake Michigan College will be asked to demonstrate basic skills in writing, math and reading. This is done by taking a placement test before registering for classes. Placement testing and transcripts have no effect on your admission to the college, but it is important to test so our advisors can help determine the right classes for you.
