Lansing Community College students who are interested in receiving their bachelor’s degree can earn them without having to relocate, thanks to the University Center at LCC.
The University Center has partnerships with four different four-year universities;
Central Michigan University, Northwood University, Siena Heights University and University
With its partners, the University Center has made transferring for LCC students easier
with the 3-plus-1 program, according to Transfer Specialist Lucas Richards.
“It’s the easiest, in my experience, Richards said. “I used to work for NU (Northwood) and worked with LCC students who came to the university.
“3-plus-1 is probably one of the easiest ways to transfer and work with dedicated
advisers who help with the transition, the classes to take and the resources to use.”
The program allows LCC students to obtain and transfer up to 90 credits from LCC and
use them toward their bachelor’s degree at one of the four universities, Richards
The final year, students can take the remaining credits equal to one year at the chosen
school. Classes for the universities are offered both online or on LCC campus at the University
Lorea Hart is an LCC student who is currently going through the 3-plus-1 program. She is majoring in psychology and seeking to receive her Bachelor of Science Degree
“The best part about the program is that I get to stay close to home and I’m still
able to pay LCC’s tuition rate while working toward my bachelor’s,” Hart said. “This
has been a pleasant transition for me.”
Hart recommended the program to any students who are looking to further their education
and earn a bachelor’s degree, but have limited means such as housing and finances.
