Several start dates to choose from

LCCC offers several start dates each semester to help you get started on your academic journey. You can start on Aug. 29, Sept. 12, Sept. 26 or Oct. 24. Depending on when you start you can take a 16-week, 14-week, 12-week or eight-week class. Find the start date and class length that fits your needs. Keep in mind you typically have more class options with the 16-week schedule.

Also remember to apply two weeks before the date you want to start so you can submit your transcripts, get your financial aid started and complete orientation.
