Transfer Placement Test From Another College

For all entering students at any Washington community and technical college, system policy provides that:

  1. A student who qualifies for a specific level of pre-college math, English, or reading, either through course completion or local skills assessment, will have that course placement level honored at another Washington CTC if the student so requests, even if the courses may not be exact equivalents.

  2. A student who qualifies for entry into college-level math, English, or reading, either through course completion or local skills assessment, will be considered to have met the entry college-level standard at every community and technical college.

  3. Students requesting reciprocity must initiate the process within one year of their initial placement assessment.

At LWIT the single point of contact for this procedure is:

Christina Harter, Assistant Director of Student Development
(425) 739-8225
West 207
christina.harter@lwtech.edu

Students who wish to use this policy must:

  1. Schedule an appointment with the point of contact listed above or her designee.

  2. At the appointment, provide placement data (test scores, placement report, etc.) and an unofficial transcript from the previous college attached to a request form. An official transcript will be required if credit was earned in a course.

LWIT will evaluate the documents and place the student in a manner equivalent to placement at the former college.
