University Partnership

University Partnership


Lorain County Community College’s University Partnership program has been identified as the best value in higher education in the state of Ohio.

Over half of the bachelor’s degree programs in the UP permit students to complete three of the four years of coursework from the Lorain County Community College curriculum at LCCC tuition rates.  This is an average savings of $40,000 for the student.

The 2009 Commencement marked a milestone moment for the University Partnership.  With a graduating class of 289 partnership students, the University Partnership has now awarded over 3,000 bachelors and graduate degrees.  Since the UP’s inception in 1996, 3,236 degrees have been awarded.

Mary Teleha, of Lorain, earned her Master’s in Biology through the University Partnership’s program with Bowling Green State University.  Mary was also one of the first graduates in the BGSU Bachelor’s in Biology partnership program.

Mark McDermott, of North Olmsted, was named the 2009 Top Student in the University of Toledo’s Computer Science and Engineering  Bachelor’s Degree program.  This honor marks the second time in the last five years the an LCCC partnership student has been named UT’s CSE Outstanding student.
