When the lab is very busy we can only take a limited number of students.
In order to help students get the most out of their higher education, the college provides tests that assess a student’s general educational background and skills in: Mathematics and English/English as a Second Language (ESL). These tests help students select courses that are realistic and compatible with their level of academic preparation and experience. The Department is concerned that students do not waste a semester selecting a class that exceeds their preparation.
It is highly recommended students study prior to taking the Assessment test (Assessment Test Practice and Preparation). Assessment placement test results are valid for two (2) years at LATTC.
