All LCCC students should meet with their assigned counselor prior to completion of their 30th credit hour.


To assist you in applying for graduation, plan to meet as early as possible with a counselor. We can:

  • Assist in determination of graduation requirements for program of interest
  • Help develop a timetable for completion of program
  • Complete a degree audit the semester before planned graduation
  • Authorize eligibility for graduation candidacy

Occasionally everyone needs someone to listen to them. If personal problems are interfering with any student’s ability to accomplish his/ her academic goals, Counselors are available to listen, and to help develop a plan to deal with these problems effectively. If it is determined that on-going personal counseling would be beneficial, referrals are made to Women’s Link or other appropriate community agencies.

We provide the following services to students:

  • Follow up for probationary and reinstated students
  • Assistance with decision making and goal setting
  • Assistance with academic difficulties (e.g. coping with college stress and feeling overwhelmed, coping with test anxiety, improving time management, building confidence, identifying personal strengths, etc.)
