About the Early College

The Early College is a collaboration between Ingham Intermediate School District (ISD) and Lansing Community College (LCC). The Early College is a program for students entering their junior year of high school that are looking for an opportunity to move into a college environment.

The Early College at LCC offers up to an associate degree, tuition free, for students in participating high schools who will be starting their junior year of high school. Enrolled students will attend class on LCC's main campus for grades 11-13 and will no longer attend their high school.

Students are expected to complete the program in three years. After three years, they will have earned their high school diploma, up to sixty college credits, an associate degree, or a technical certification, tuition free. These credits are transferable to most Michigan and national colleges and universities.

The Early College at LCC will place an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) which lead to a wide range of career paths. Careers in these areas have grown the most consistently over the last generation, and that is expected to continue. This is a rigorous program for motivated students.
