*You may want to bring a sweater or sweatshirt as some of the rooms/buildings you are in do get chilly. Even better, stop by our Barnes and Noble at LSSU (order online) and purchase a new sweatshirt to help keep you warm and show your Laker Pride.

  • Cross-reference your ACT/SAT scores to the LSSU placement chart or use the placement calculator to determine course placement.
  • It is important to complete all exams prior to orientation.
