Readiness Testing

Readiness Testing

Students must complete placement testing before registering for a second semester at LDSBC.


All entering students must provide a placement test score (ACT, SAT, Accuplacer, or College Success) or submit a transcript showing college transfer credits in English prior to registration for English courses.

Entering students may take a new English placement test if past scores from another institution place the student in a course below English 101.

Students whose native language is not English are required to take the LDSBC placement test. Exceptions may be made for those who have graduated from high school in the U.S. or have U.S. college credit.


Placement test scores or a transcript showing college transfer credits are required to register for any math class above MAT 90.

An updated LDSBC readiness test is required if previous ACT, SAT, or placement test scores are more than 18 months old.
