Founded in 1963, Lorain County Community College is a public, two-year, coeducational institution providing a broad range of transfer, liberal arts, education, technical, and career-related programs. The College welcomes a diverse population of students of varying ages and backgrounds.

All Lorain County Community College students benefit from a broad range of supportive services including academic advising, tutoring, learning resource and library services, childcare services, food services, and use of individualized computer laboratories located throughout the campus.
