Getting Started

In order to take online courses at LCCC, you must first be admitted as a student. It is also recommended that you meet with an academic advisor to be sure about which online courses are right for you, and for any guidance you need through the registration process.

Once you have registered for any LCCC course, you will be provided with an account  to access College resources, including the learning management system (LMS). The LMS is used at LCCC for all online courses and to supplement many face-to-face courses. The LMS is designed to allow instructors to provide materials and interact with students online.

You can begin your online learning experience at LCCC by logging in to D2L. All first time student users are encouraged to take the D2L Student Tutorial before starting any online courses. All current D2L courses can be found from the My Home page, which is the first page you see after you login. If you are unable to login to D2L or experience technical difficulties, please contact the ITS Help Desk.
