Students who are applying as a guest student must use our online admission application to apply to Lansing Community College. LCC does not require the paper Michigan Undergraduate Guest Application. Simply go to lcc.edu/apply, set up your login and select the Guest-Attending Other College application type. On-line admission applications are processed on a daily basis. There will be a delay when receiving your acceptance letter by mail so be sure to include an email address so that we can email your acceptance notice which will include your student ID and direct you to your next steps.
Your issuing institution(s) may send your transcripts electronically via Clearinghouse Electronic Exchange, Parchment, eSCRIP, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Steps for Success
Apply to the College
Apply online or in person at any student services location.
Note: Choose Guest or Transfer student on your LCC application if you have attended college somewhere besides LCC.
How to Apply to LCC
Activate Your Student Account
After you apply and receive your student number (X00…) activate your LCC account. If you need assistance with this step, please call our help desk at 517-483-5221.
Placement levels (and sometimes, prerequisite courses) are required in order to register for classes. There are a few ways you can establish levels:
- a. Upload your unofficial college transcript with our waiver. LCC also accepts SAT/ACT scores and high school GPA (within 3 years). Upload any or all of these documents through our waiver.
- b. If you are not able to access any of the above documents, you can take our placement tests.
If you are planning to earn a degree or certificate at LCC you should have your previous college send your official college credit to LCC. Once LCC receives this, we will assess it for any official transfer credit. This can take up to 4-6 weeks.
Note: If you are a guest student taking classes at LCC to transfer back to your home institution, you can request an official copy of your transcripts once you have completed your LCC coursework.
As a transfer/guest student, orientation is not required. You are welcome to attend a session if you would like!
Your next step is to see an Academic Advisor* to plan out your courses. Check out advising options (including appointments, drop ins, and online advising).
*If possible, bring a copy of your unofficial transcript to refer to when meeting with an advisor.

After completing the steps above, you are ready to register for classes! If you need help, reach out to your Success Coach or visit the StarZone in the Gannon Building. You can also register on your own in Banner, just log into MyLCC.
