Placement Testing

To ensure that students register for classes that are appropriate for their current skill level, BCC requires all new students to take the Learning Skills Assessment prior to registering for classes. The LSA is designed to measure your current skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. The LSA consists of three sections: reading comprehension, a short essay, and mathematics. There are no failing or passing scores for the LSA. The results are used to place students in the appropriate level courses.

Placement Testing

As part of the admission process, incoming students are required to take placement tests in English, mathematics, reading, and keyboarding. Since the test results are used to advise and schedule students into the appropriate course levels, the tests must be taken prior to registering for classes. If a student who has been accepted into a degree or certificate program scores below college level on the STCC placement tests, he or she must enroll in developmental courses. This will usually lengthen the time necessary to complete the desired program.
