Lansing Community College

College Connect programs are intended to provide free comprehensive support to prepare students for a successful 1st semester of college. This includes preparing to enroll in English and Mathematics courses either with or without support. Students who are already prepared to enter college-level courses in either English or Mathematics without support may opt out of participating in the unneeded portion of the program. Students who need support in both English and Mathematics should complete both portions.
