We know you've got questions, and we'll do our best to help. Fall classes began on September 19, 2016. Winter quarter classes begin on January 3. See more important academic dates on the Academic Calendar.

How do I get started?

Our Entry Center is ready to assist you in getting started and direct you to resources. You can contact us by email at, or call (360) 442-2311.

Transferring credits?

We do not have a standing articulation agreement with ITT Tech, but we will work with you individually to explore options that could prevent you from completely starting over.

Financial Aid

If you have Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA), you should be able to apply your aid toward classes at Lower ColumbiaCollege. You will need to add Lower Columbia College to your FAFSA for us to see your aid package and assist you. The college's FAFSA code is 003782.

If you used federal student loans to pay your ITT tuition, it's possible that you may be eligible to have your federal student loans discharged. If you elect to have your federal loan debt wiped away, you'll have the option of restarting your education at Lower Columbia College. Whether you chose this option or not, our Financial Aid office can work with you to determine the best ways to get you back on track.
