Math is required for each of our associate degree programs. To ensure that you are placed in the correct math class, we ask students to take a math placement exam. If you have documentation such as high school or college transcripts or recent SAT test scores, be sure to send them to us for review and possible waiver of the placement exam requirement. Students should submit documents to the Admissions Office. High school transcripts and placement score results do not need to be official documents. 

If placement cannot be determined using these methods, math placement exams are offered by appointment on campus Monday – Thursday 11:00am – 4:00pm and Friday 9:00am – 2:00pm in the Bennett Library. The placement exam is offered at no cost to students and may take up to two hours to complete. Appointments should be made in Navigate.

LRCC students can either order textbooks and course materials online or visit the NHTI bookstore and shop in person. Online orders will include free shipping. Most books and materials can be purchased or rented by the semester.

The LRCC Bookstore website has a great ‘shop by student ID’ feature that allows you to enter your student ID into the Bookstore website to view and purchase your books and course supplies. Visit the LRCC Bookstore website for more information.

It’s free to park on campus but you will need to register your vehicle and pick up a parking decal from Campus Safety. You will need your student username and password to access the registration form. Register your vehicle here

FERPA…a weird but important acronym. FERPA stands for the The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. It’s a law designed to protect your student records. Before you turned 18, your parents or legal guardian likely had the rights to your education records. Once you turned 18, these rights were transferred to you. LRCC can talk about  some or all of your college records with whomever you specify (a parent, guardian, caseworker, etc.) only if you sign and return this Authorization to Release Student Information.

LRCC’s fitness center is located in room 218 on the second floor of the Turner building. It has cardio machines and free weights and is available for use during campus business hours. Students must complete a waiver form to access the center.
