Lower Columbia College was established in 1934 as Lower Columbia Junior College. In 1961 it was elevated to a community college. In 1967 it joined the state-supported community college system.
Our greatest strength is our community support. We work closely with local organizations to support our community and give back in whatever way we can. We set high academic standards and love working with students from all walks of life. LCC welcomes curiosity, creativity, intellectual ambition, and an openness to new ideas. We see learning as a challenging, deeply rewarding, and profoundly important activity to be shared in a spirit of collaboration.
