Please Note:

Vaccination against COVID-19 is required of all students admitted to any healthcare program at LCC. No currently available accommodations will allow for clinical placement of unvaccinated students, thus unvaccinated students will not be able to enroll in healthcare program cohort courses (those courses taken once admitted to a healthcare program).
