LCCC offers several programs perfect for expanding your horizons - and your education - today, often at no cost!

Post Secondary Enrollment Options
(PSEO B)

The Post Secondary Enrollment Option program is a popular choice for students, and for good reason. This program allows students to earn college credits while in high school, all for free, however, students must meet certain GPA qualifications to participate. Under this program, qualified students enroll in courses at LCCC or on-site at select high schools and receive dual credit for high school requirements and for college credit. These credits may be used at LCCC or for transfer to the college or university of choice after high school graduation. Because the program is state-funded, even books and other fees are covered! www.lorainccc.edu/pseo

Early College High School (ECHS)

The Early College High School is an innovative learning environment designed to inspire and motivate students who have the potential to be the first in their families to graduate from college. Beginning in ninth grade, students participate in a combined high school and college experience with the goal of earning a high school diploma and college associate’s degree at the same time. Students must be enrolled or open-enrolled through Lorain or Elyria City Schools but all courses are taught on the LCCC campus tuition-free. www.lorainccc.edu/earlycollege

College Tech Prep (CTP)

College Tech Prep programs give students the college-preparatory academics they need for further education as well as the real-world technology skills and experience they’ll need to succeed in a career. They can also earn free college credits during high school – without paying for tuition or books! Program areas include Building and Design, e-Commerce, Health Science Technology, Interactive Multimedia Technology, Graphics and Design, Engineering Technology, Medical Office Technology, Network Communications Technology, “Project Lead the Way” (pre-engineering), Programming and Software Development, and Sports, Health and Fitness Technology. All College Tech Prep programs link to 2-year associate degree programs at LCCC – with additional pathways to the bachelor’s degree and beyond. www.lorainccc.edu/techprep

LCCC Credit In Escrow

LCCC's Credit In Escrow program allows qualifying high school students to take college courses for credit and to have these credits saved for use until after high school graduation. Credits are then utilized at LCCC or for transfer to the college or university of choice. Home-educated students are also eligible to participate in this program. www.lorainccc.edu/pseo

Teacher Education Exploration (TEE)

The Teacher Education Exploration program is designed for high school seniors looking forward to careers in teaching. Lorain County JVS and Lorain County high schools, in collaboration with LCCC, offers unique teaching internship experiences in a variety of grade levels and subject areas within the school district where the TEE students reside. Participants can earn credit for both high school and college under the guidance of accomplished teachers while exploring the professional field of education. http://www.lcjvstee.com

Lorain County JVS

The Lorain County JVS offers career and technical training to high school students from 13 local districts. Graduation requirements and integrated academic courses are provided to all students in seven career-technical academies. The majority of programs provide additional accreditations and certifications, including apprenticeship training, to students who complete the two-year curriculum. A substantial number of programs are granting articulated post secondary credits to students who meet the qualifications. Acceptance into these programs is based on attendance, grade point average and credits accumulated during the freshman and sophomore years of high school. Lorain City Schools supports its own vocational programs and does not enroll at the Lorain County JVS.


College for Teens

College for Teens allows middle and high-school students to take modestly-priced non-credit courses on LCCC’s campus throughout the school year and summer in a wide variety of subject areas, from movie making and video game design to digital photography and dramatic stage performance. These are short courses that are designed specifically for the College for Teens program, and offer teens an opportunity to delve into subject area of choice and to try the college experience first-hand before graduation. http://www.lorainccc.edu
