Placement and First-Year Points of Entry
The Academic Placement Team reviews relevant information from the application for admission to determine each student’s initial placement in the curriculum.
Upon acceptance to Landmark College, students place into one of three Points of Entry:
- Language Intensive Curriculum (LIC)
- Partial Credit Curriculum (PC)
- Credit Curriculum
The Academic Placement Team reviews relevant information from the application for admission to determine each student’s initial placement in the curriculum. Relevant materials may include educational history, achievement test results, and performance on the College’s placement test. The Placement Team works to ensure that each student is placed at a level of the curriculum which is appropriate to the student’s skill level and most likely to facilitate individual academic growth.
Once placed, each student receives written notice of the placement decision. Students with questions about placement may appeal their placement decisions with the Director of First Year Academic Programming and Placement. Refer to information on the First Year Program for more information.
