A Message From the President

Welcome to Lorain County Community College!

The start of a new year is an exciting time, and we are honored you turned to LCCC to help reach your goals. This year is especially exciting as we celebrate 60 years of LCCC serving our community. LCCC is committed to your success, whether you are pursuing a certificate, associate or applied bachelor’s degree from LCCC, or a bachelor’s or master’s degree through LCCC’s University Partnership

With nine academic and career pathways that connect to real jobs here in Northeast Ohio, you can confidently focus on your education. LCCC works closely with more than 700 local employers to ensure you graduate career-ready. In fact, 90% of LCCC graduates live and work in Northeast Ohio.

At LCCC, every student’s dream matters and our Culture of Care wraps you in tailored support you can count on to help you overcome any obstacle. Personalized academic advising and tutoring services ensure academic success, while our Advocacy and Resource Center (ARC) provides access to food, emergency aid, mental health resources, and much more.

All of these services are delivered at LCCC’s low tuition rate. In fact, LCCC is among the top 10% most affordable schools in the nation, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center.

The savings continue for those who choose to advance their education with the LCCC University Partnership. You can select from more than 100 bachelor’s or master’s degree options from 14 Ohio college and universities, all delivered on the LCCC campus at an average savings of 70% of the cost.
