LCC is operating - we're just doing things differently.

Due to an extension of the 'Stay at Home' order, LCC will continue to operate remotely through May 31. Medical Assisting, Nursing, Machining and Welding will resume limited lab activity on May 5. Applications for emergency funding assistance are still being accepted. - Learn More.

Feedback

Lower Columbia College does not designate a valedictorian. Instead, we recognize four students with the highest grade point averages and most rigorous coursework.

Two awards are given to students in the professional/technical area (including professional/technical students in transfer pathways), and two in academic transfer. Scholastic Achievement Awards are LCC’s highest academic honors.

Awards are presented each year at the Annual Commencement ceremony. These are the only awards presented during Commencement.
