Did you step away from LCCC during the coronavirus pandemic? 


Up to $2,000 in Support is Available to Resume Your Education at LCCC

During the COVID-19 pandemic, LCCC students and our local community experienced multiple disruptions to everyday life. From juggling kids’ school schedules, employment impacts and changes, and financial strains, our LCCC students have certainly shown resilience despite challenges during the pandemic.  

We know our students have been faced with difficult choices regarding their progress towards a certificate or degree.

If you needed to step away from LCCC due to the pandemic (Spring, Fall or Summer 2020), we are committed to automatically providing you with up to $2,000 in support to help you resume your education with LCCC. As a prior member of the LCCC community, we also want to remind you we can assist with access to food, emergency aid, career clothing for internships and interviews, and other resources to help you while enrolled.  

These automatic funds will be directly provided to you, and are designed to ensure you have everything you need to resume your studies: 

If you need additional resources beyond what is provided automatically, we encourage you to connect with the Advocacy and Resource Center (ARC)’ Emergency Aid at any time so we can learn more about your situation and needs and provide the resources to help you return to the LCCC campus community in Summer or Fall 2021.  

If you stepped away from LCCC prior to Spring 2020 and wish to return for Summer or Fall 2021, we can still help you with these needs. LCCC has the resources to assist any student in returning and making progress towards their academic goals. Return by connecting with your Academic Advisor. 


Balance Forgiveness for Adult Learners (attending prior to COVID-19)

LCCC welcomes back adult learners who have made some progress towards a certificate or degree, but needed to step away for a period of time. LCCC also recognizes that prior balances may present a challenge for some adult learners to return to meet their educational goals.
