Five Reasons Why LCC is Great


Innovative Programming

Employers want to hire our graduates because of the hands-on, real-world experience provided by our academic programs.

Delta Air Lines partners with LCC’s Aviation Maintenance Technology program, and manufacturing and engineering companies from around the world recruit from our Robotics and Automation, Precision Machining, Welding and CIT programs.

Our transfer opportunities are also clearly mapped so students who want to continue their education beyond LCC can do so.


A Great Place to Learn

Specialized learning environments, public art, cultural displays and high-tech labs cater to every student's learning style and lifestyle. Class times and support services are convenient for all students as we offer several locations within the greater Lansing area, early morning to late evening classes, programs that can be completed 100 percent online, as well as dedicated tutors, faculty and staff who are ready to help you succeed.


Small Class Sizes

Smaller classes provide you with the opportunity to get to know your instructor, work with classmates, ask questions and get plenty of hands-on experience with new technology. The average LCC class has 20 students.


Personalized Support

Your success is our priority. That's why students are matched with success coaches who provide one-on-one support and coaching, and who will connect you with resources on-and-off campus. Also, most course have 24/7 live, online tutors so there's never a moment when your questions go unanswered!


Save Money ranked us the #1 community college in Michigan because we offer outstanding programs and useful student success resources, at the best value. We have one of the lowest in-district tuition rates in Michigan, which starts at approximately $4,035 per full-time academic year. Our in-state tuition rate per full-time academic year starts at approximately $7,545, but generous scholarships and our expert financial aid staff can help cut down costs. Many LCC courses are switching to free, online textbooks and learning resources to help keep student costs down as well.
