LCCC Classes are Guaranteed to Transfer
We understand that this year is not what you expected, and that your plans may be changing. LCCC is here to help by offering the general education classes you need – at a fraction of the cost of universities. You can continue your academic progress and easily transfer your credits when you’re ready. And if you need classes that require in-person instruction – like a lab science – our small class sizes are ideal for social distancing and safety protocols. We have a dedicated a team of academic advisors to help you navigate the enrollment process.
You can get started today by completing the online application for admission. If you are a College Credit Plus student, you don’t need to complete an application. Get started by scheduling an appointment with your academic advisor.
We offer more than 100 general education classes including:
- and many more!

Applying and Registering at LCCC
Here are some of the frequently asked questions to guide you in making this change for spring 2021:
What “student type” should I select on my LCCC application?
As a student who has changed their plans for spring 2021, you may fall into one of three categories. Our Enrollment Services team can also assist you in changing your student type after acceptance, if needed:
*Note, if you have applied to LCCC or taken classes with us previously, you will not need to apply again
- New Students are students who are new to college and intend to enroll at LCCC for multiple semesters
- Transfer Students are students who have earned previous college credit from a college other than LCCC
- Transient Students are students with a “home institution” other than LCCC (ie, attending LCCC for one semester, but are considered a student elsewhere)
I was registered for classes at another institution for spring 2021. Can I use this schedule to determine what to take at LCCC?
LCCC offers hundreds of transferable courses, and can assist you in finding the LCCC equivalent on your spring 2021 schedule. Have a copy of your schedule on hand when you speak with your LCCC academic advisor, who can help you find the courses that will transfer to your university. You can explore this independently before your advising appointment using Transferology.
Do I need to take a placement test at LCCC?
If you have already been registered at another institution for spring 2021, or have previous college credits, you may not need to complete another placement test here at LCCC. When you meet with your LCCC advisor, please have your previous placement scores (and the type of test used), as well as your existing schedule, ACT/ SAT scores, and unofficial transcripts if you have earned college credits elsewhere.
Will I need to submit official documents (HS transcripts, previous college transcripts) to LCCC?
Yes. While we can use unofficial copies of your information to get you started and for advising, students attending LCCC are required to have official high school transcripts, college transcripts from other institutions they have attended on file. Learn more about on sending your transcripts to LCCC.
I am a 2020 Lorain County high school graduate, and was originally eligible for LCCC’s Presidential, Trustee, or Diversity Incentive Award Scholarships. Can I still claim my scholarship and apply it to spring 2021?
Yes! You can still accept your fall 2020 scholarship. Also, 2020 Lorain County high school graduates are eligible to receive $500 in additional support to assist with costs associated with COVID-19 disruption and movement to remote delivery of courses and services as a response to the pandemic.
As a transfer or University Partnership student at LCCC, you may qualify for university scholarships when you transfer by applying for our UP and transfer scholarships opportunities. And if you just graduated from a Lorain County high school or you were an LCCC College Credit Plus student, you may qualify of additional scholarships. LCCC students also have access to dozens of scholarship opportunities.
What about my Financial Aid? I thought I would be going elsewhere for spring 2021. What do I do next?
First, identify if you are a new or transfer student (committing to LCCC for a degree or program) or a transient student (just visiting – planning to return to your other, or “home” school). See above FAQ on student type for more information.
New or transfer students should add LCCC to their 2020-21 FAFSA by entering our federal school code, 003068. Financial Services will receive your FAFSA and process it. Monitor your LCCC student email for updates and advisory information about your financial aid eligibility at LCCC.
Transient students should start the “consortium agreement” process by contacting the financial aid office at their home school. Consortium agreements are between two schools to ensure that only one school processes financial aid for you. Part of the consortium agreement process also ensures the credits you earn from LCCC will transfer and be accepted by your home institution. Since financial aid will not apply to your student account/bill for tuition and fees at LCCC, you can pay for these courses “out of pocket” or use any overage in financial aid at your home institution to pay your bill at LCCC. Learn more about consortium agreements.
Delivery of Courses
Choose from four types of classes in formats designed to keep you safe and meet your needs. Formats include online, online live, blended and in-person.
Will your courses transfer?
You can find out how your courses will transfer to other colleges and universities using Transferology – an online transfer tool. This nation-wide network helps you explore all of your college transfer options. Remember to always work with an advisor at LCCC or your future destination for full academic planning.
You can earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree close to home and save thousands on the cost of your college education. Our University Partnership offers degrees from 14 colleges and universities delivering more than 100 bachelor’s and master’s degrees – saving an average of $74,000. Classes are taught by the university’s instructors and you will earn your university degree at a fraction of the cost of a traditional four-year college experience.
Any time you have questions or concerns, you can chat directly with an academic advisor who will help you through the enrollment process.
