The Lorain County Community College Board of Trustees have adopted the MyEmployer Guarantee – the third phase of its “Our Promise” initiative.
This phase guarantees to employers that any LCCC student who completes an applied degree program will have the skills necessary to successfully perform a job during the three years immediately following the awarding of the degree. If a graduate who is employed is found to have skill gaps related to the competencies of focus for that applied degree, they will be provided up to 15 credit hours of coursework tuition-free to remediate the deficiency.
The MyEmployer Guarantee also provides up to 10 hours of sponsored talent planning, assessment and recruitment and advancement services to employers who pledge to partner with LCCC’s Entrepreneurship Innovation Institute as their talent planning resource provider.
The MyEmployer Guarantee is the third phase of LCCC’s “Our Promise” initiative that it introduced in March. The first phase is a tuition guarantee that locks in tuition and fees rates at the current level for students registering in fall of 2014 and spring of 2015 for up to three years or until the completion of their degree, whichever comes first.
The MyUniversity Guarantee is the second phase of the “Our Promise” initiative. It has the potential to significantly increase the number of high school students in Lorain County and the surrounding area who can successfully earn college credit while still in and at their high school.
MyUniversity will enable high school students to even go as far as earning an associate degree simultaneously with their high school diploma. Students can then continue on to earn a bachelor’s degree by as early as age 20 in high demand careers through LCCC’s University Partnership program. In doing so, students can save over 80 percent of the cost of a bachelor’s degree through MyUniversity, essentially saving families tens of thousands of dollars in college debt.
The “Our Promise” initiative ensures that students can reduce the time and cost required to complete a degree while guaranteeing the quality of the education to the employers in our county.
