Why Community College?


Whether you want to learn basic skills, get ready to transfer to a 4-year university, or earn a professional certificate, there are options designed to help you succeed.

Students attending LCC save money, experience academic flexibility, and get the education and training they need for today's good jobs.

Cost Savings


Paying for college is a big consideration. At community colleges like LCC, tuition and fees are about half the average cost of a four-year university.

Transfer students can complete the first two years of their four-year degree at a much lower cost, significantly lowering the overall cost of their education.

High school juniors and seniors can earn high school and college credit at the same time–without paying tuition–through LCC's Running Start program. Over the past five years the number of students earning both a high school diploma, and an associate degree, has almost doubled!

Academic Flexibility


Many students need to ease into the world of higher education, especially students who struggled in high school, or anyone who's unsure if the want to make the significant time and money investment into college.

Open admission ensures all students will be admitted......

Students unsure of their career path can experience different areas of study through lower-level classes or certificate programs that lead to job placement.

Financial Aid


A college education is one of the biggest investments you will make. Financial aid isn't just for four-year college students–community college students are eligible for many different types of aid.

Undocumented students in Washington state have the right to attend colleges and universities. Many qualify for state-funded financial aid because of the Washington Dream Act, also called the The Real Hope Act  which was signed into law in 2014.

The LCC Foundation supports students through an annual scholarship fund, as well as a Student Success Fund designed to help students in serious need.

Personalized Attention


Smaller class sized mean students can find more personal attention and one-on-one time with instructors. This can be a plus for students who like to learn at their own pace and ask plenty of questions as they go.
