LCCC Makes Sense

Lorain County Community College is calling YOU!


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’s University Partners
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:

  • Ashland University
  • Bowling Green State University
  • Cleveland State University
  • Kent State University
  • Ohio University
  • The University of Akron
  • The University of Toledo
  • Youngstown State University

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
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.

Tuition and Costs
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. Click here for a breakdown of the cost savings of earning a bachelor’s degree from the University Partnership. You’ll see that it’s the most practical and cost-effective way to earn a bachelor’s degree in Lorain County.
