Lake Superior College partners with area high schools to offer Concurrent Enrollment programs (college level classes taught by high school teachers in high school classrooms) or Honors Online programs (Lake Superior college courses made available online). View our FAQ and Overview Flyer.

Please see below for more information and contact your counselor to enroll.

Benefits

  • 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 successfully completing a CITS or HOL course. There is no need to test out of the course, unlike AP.

Transferability

To transfer your Lake Superior College credits to another institution, contact them directly as the receiving institution determines transferability of credits. 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.

Eligibility

  • Seniors must rank in the top half of their high school class or have a cumulative GPA of 2.5.
  • Juniors must rank in the top third of their high school class or have a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
  • Sophomores who took the 8th grade MCA reading test and met the composite proficiency level of “meets” or exceeds” may enroll in specific career and technical education (CTE) courses.
  • Students must meet course prerequisites.

Accuplacer

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

Contact your high school counselor for Accuplacer testing dates and times.

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