If you are like most students, you are probably asking:
What classes or programs are right for me?
Can I afford this?
LCC's average one year (two semesters), full-time enrollment cost is around $4,300 for an in-district resident and $7,800 for an in-state student. At four-year universities, you could be paying upwards of $10,000 a year in tuition alone. A cost comparison is featured below.
LCC offers scholarships, grants, work-study and tuition payment plans to help you fund your education. Learn more ways to cover your education costs at lcc.edu/fa.

We are with you every step of the way.
