All eighth grade students who plan to attend LCC, or who are considering attending LCC, are required to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT).
The exam takes approximately four hours and tests students in verbal and quantitative skills, reading, mathematics, language and science. The test results are considered, along with recommendations from the student’s eighth grade teachers, for placement into freshman classes at LCC. The HSPT Student Score Report also gives information about a student’s knowledge, skills, interests and plans.
Beginning in 2013, scholarship opportunities at LCC based on HSPT scores were made available. Twenty-four renewable scholarships ranging in value from $250 to $1500 annually are awarded.
Registration for the test is coordinated through the Catholic grade schools, or is available by contacting the LCC Guidance Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (419) 222-1826. There is a $15 fee to take the test. The next testing dates will be on February 4 and February 11, 2017.
