Class Size and Student-Faculty Ratio


Class sizes vary depending on the discipline and available facilities and equipment. Certain disciplines, such as Nursing, must adhere to external standards that limit class size. Other disciplines, such as Machine Trades, Welding, and Automotive Technology, set class size according to the available equipment. The majority of LCC classes range from 15-35 students.

In 2019-20, LCC's student-faculty ratio was 17.46 for all students, and 16.31 for state-supported students. 

The student-faculty ratio indicates how many full-time equivalent students were on campus for every full-time equivalent faculty member. Full-time equivalency is determined by credits taken for students, and credits taught for faculty.
