Lansing, Mich. - (March 8, 2022) Lansing Community College’s Coalition for College and Career Readiness (C3R) will hold Ready for Launch 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. on March 11.

Ready for Launch will provide resources and success strategies including academic advising, available accommodations and financial aid information for students on the autism spectrum who are interested in attending LCC.

"Ready for Launch is a labor of love for the C3R Student Transition Action Team,” said Michele Strasz Executive Director for Capital Area College Access Network. “We wanted to ensure that students on the autism spectrum understand the college-going process and the resources available to them at LCC so they can be successful and achieve their goals."
