  • Face-to-Face: A traditional, in-person class with on-campus instruction.
  • ON - Online: Traditional online course with no live class sessions.
  • ORT - Partial Scheduled Lecture: An online real time (ORT) class that has some regularly scheduled online meeting day(s) and time(s) along with unscheduled online instruction and activities.

LCC remains in close communication with our local health departments, and the college will continue to adjust its plans as needed to protect the health and safety of our students, employees and community.

Students must be admitted to the college and complete the required steps prior to registering.

Students should determine that all of the required course prerequisites have been met and seats are available.

Dropping a Class

Students are responsible for dropping all courses they are not planning to attend and are responsible for payment of classes in which they are enrolled. Students should not assume they will be dropped from a class or classes for nonpayment, as there are many factors which will determine whether and when a student is dropped for nonpayment. It is the student's responsibility to verify his or her enrollment status. To verify enrollment status, students can view their schedule on the LCC Website.

Students should drop online until the deadline for each teaching period. Refunds are available based on the Refund Schedule below.

Please note: Dropping a class may require you to pay money back to the College if you have received financial aid. Contact the Financial Aid office before dropping!

Paying for Classes

Pay your bill to avoid having your classes dropped. Access your LCC Student E-mail Account for important updates.

If you are unfamiliar with your LCC student e-mail account, visit the Student Email Assistance page for a step-by-step guide to getting started.

Because of federal regulations, Financial Aid can only pay for classes that are in your major or program of study. It is important to keep your major updated and only register for courses needed so you don’t have to pay for classes without financial aid.

To update your major or program of study, access the Change of Program Request form.
