  • Save money on highly transferable college courses. By taking college courses in high school, students potentially save thousands of dollars in higher education costs.
  • Get a head-start on in-demand career preparation. Some students graduate from high school with enough credits to earn their A.A. degree.
  • Take rigorous courses and explore content at a deeper level.
  • Continue to participate in high school sports and activities.
  • Receive LSC credit immediately after completing a CITS or HOL course. There is no need to test out of the course, unlike AP.


Order a copy of your LSC transcript or have a copy sent to another institution.

To search how your LSC course will transfer to another institution (or vice-versa), visit Transferology. Transferology is a nation-wide network designed to help students explore their college transfer options and is not associated with Lake Superior College. To verify your Lake Superior College credits will transfer to another institution, contact them directly as the receiving institution determines transferability of credits


  • Seniors must rank in the top half of their high school class or have a cumulative GPA of 2.5.

  • Students must meet course prerequisites.


The Accuplacer Placement Test is a computerized placement test designed to provide information about students’ reading and math skills. The test determines if students are prepared for college-level course work or if they would require developmental courses.

The following ACT scores may be substituted for Accuplacer scores:

  • Reading– 21
  • Math– 22

The following MCA scores may be substituted for Accuplacer scores:

  • Reading–1047 (only substitutes for some courses)
  • Math– 1158 (1148 for General Statistics I)

Contact your high school counselor for Accuplacer testing dates and times or to discuss Accuplacer substitutions.

Prepare for the Accuplacer: Choose Classic Accuplacer Sample Questions and use Reading, Elementary Algebra, and College Level Math tests
