LCCC to CSU Pathway
Lorain County Community College and Cleveland State University offer two new Transfer Pathways Pre-Med and Pre-Law. Students are offered significant savings* by completing two years at LCCC before transferring to CSU to complete these professional programs.
Students who graduate with the LCCC Associates of Science degree can transfer to Cleveland State University (CSU) to complete the last two years on the CSU campus. LCCC and CSU have created two pathway options that would lead to either a Bachelor of Science in Health Science or a Bachelor of Science in Biology.
If you have questions about the Pre-Med program, please contact the appropriate Cleveland State University representatives:
For the CSU B.S. in Biology pathway:
Dr. Kristy Tokarczyk, Assistant Dean for Student Services
College of Arts and Sciences
Cleveland State University
For the CSU B.S. in Health Sciences pathway:
Casey Mawson, Assistant Dean for Student Services
College of Health
Cleveland State University
In Pre-Law, LCCC students can complete their Associate of Arts with a concentration in Philosophy, Political Science, or Urban Studies, before transferring to CSU to complete their law degree. The State of Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) has approved a pathway for CSU undergraduate students to receive their bachelor’s and law school degree in six years rather than seven years.
If you have questions about the Pre-Law program, you may contact the Cleveland-Marshal Law Office of Admissions at Cleveland State University for additional details at (216) 687-2304 or email@example.com.
LCCC’s Library provides more information about careers in Pre-Med and Pre-Law.
The LCCC Transfer Center can provide more information about all transfer opportunities.
