Frequently Asked Questions

Where will I receive communications throughout the semester?

While attending LCCC, it is important to use your LCCC student email address and Canvas messaging (in the case of your classes), as these are two official channels of communication between students, faculty, and staff. Using these systems helps us to verify we are emailing directly with you, in the event we need to share information regarding your student records.

RAVE Mobile Safety is LCCC’s primary alert system for sending emergency notifications. Additional information about other LCCC mobile apps can be found here.

What is the LCCC Catalog and why do I need to review it?

The LCCC Catalog is the college’s official document containing student policies and procedures, as well as requirements and academic program information. We welcome students to not only use this resource as a reference guide, but also to reach out to their advisors, student services staff and faculty when help is needed to navigate the information listed within the Catalog.

I started classes, but what if I need to adjust my schedule?

One important consideration when making changes to your schedule is the Academic Calendar, which lists the deadlines for making changes to your current schedule.

Once classes begin, students may change their schedule through the Schedule Adjustment process. However, this needs to be completed before the second class meeting.

After the second meeting has passed, students should consult with their professor and Academic Advisor prior to completing a Withdrawal. Because there are often financial impacts from withdrawing from classes, students receiving Financial Aid through LCCC as well as any other service (such as public assistance programs, veteran or military benefits, employer, etc) are strongly advised to consult with these entities before withdrawing from any classes.

What type of technology should I have in place for classes and virtual services?

LCCC offers services and classes using different approaches to meet student needs. All LCCC students are advised to have specific, basic technology access in place to be able to fully engage with their classes and the support services we offer. Our Student Technology Guide can be used to make sure you have what you need to be successful in both in-person and virtual environments this Fall.

However, if you need to make a change this semester, here are important steps to follow to make sure you fully understanding the academic and financial impacts of course drops and withdrawals:

  1. Consult with your instructor and Academic Advisor before dropping or withdrawing from a class, as they may be able to help with any challenges you are facing.
  2. Understand the Tuition Refund Policy for information about how a drop may impact your tuition and fees.
  3. Consult with Financial Services (or Veterans Services if you are receiving military education benefits) to determine how course drops may impact your benefits or aid eligibility.
Student surveys: Why does LCCC keep asking me to do them?

As an LCCC student, we will periodically ask you about your needs, challenges, success, and experiences either directly, through surveys, pools, and other communication channels.  While participation is always voluntary, we strongly encourage you to engage with us this way. The results of these efforts are used to continually improve and evolve our services so we can help students with all types of backgrounds fully engage with LCCC and fulfill their goals.

I am overwhelmed and need mental health support- Can LCCC help?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, and even prior to it, we know our students have experienced stress and may need assistance with mental health supports. Our commitment to caring for the “whole student” has informed our approach to addressing mental health needs among our students.

Through a combination of one-on-one personal counseling services offered through the Advocacy and Resource Center (ARC), community partners search database, addiction and recovery services (CARE Center), peer support groups, after-hours counseling access services, mobile apps, and self-guided tools, we encourage any student in our community to reach out for help. Find the personal counseling approach that works best for you.

ALL students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to download the We Care mobile app, which provides mobile access to emergency and crisis resources, as well as tips to support themselves and others during crisis.

Who can help me find a job?

Whether you are seeking a Student Employment position, an internship or job with a local employer related to your field, or want to get a jumpstart on building your career while in school, Career Services is the point of contact for connecting you to work opportunities.

Students are also highly encouraged to alert their professors and advisor to their career and employment goals, too. The LCCC community is filled with networks and connections to local opportunities, and all collaborate with one another and Career Services to help students secure employment. If you are in need of professional clothing for employment or interviews, be sure to stop in to the Commodore Career Closet.
