A Bachelor's Degree is Closer Thank You Think
The University Partnership at Lorain County Community College offers local residents a way to earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree without ever leaving Lorain County. For students interested in staying close to home, or trying to save some money on college expenses, this is the perfect solution.
LCCC has partnered with some of Ohio’s leading universities to offer bachelor’s and master’s degrees in today’s hottest career fields. Partner universities include:

How the UP Works
Students participating in the University Partnership program save big by taking their first two (and sometimes three) years of coursework from LCCC—at LCCC’s tuition rate. Students can then move seamlessly to the partner university coursework and complete their bachelor’s degree on LCCC’s campus as a student of the partner university.
Check out this video to see how it all works for two students in the Business Administration University Partnership program through Kent State University.
The University Center provides a point-of-contact for University Partnership staff, faculty and students. Most of the partner universities have academic advisors with regular office hours in the University Center. And faculty and students have access to computer labs and classroom facilities that maximize the learning experience.
While UP students are registered in LCCC classes, they pay LCCC tuition. Upon transitioning to partner university coursework, students pay the tuition rate established by the partner university.
