FAQ

How do I get a student ID?

Student ID cards are issued by the Student Hub at either the Cheyenne or Laramie campus. To get a student ID, you must be registered for classes, and must show a photo ID.

Due to our current modified operations from the COVID-19 pandemic, Student ID Cards must be requested online. You can use this form to upload your photo, once you are registered for classes. You will have the choice to have your ID mailed to you, or to pick it up on campus (Cheyenne campus only). 

Where can I find my student ID number?

Your student ID number can be found in your myLCCC account.

After your application has been received and processed, you will be admitted and your myLCCC account will be created. Allow two to three business days for processing of your application. You will get an email when your account has been created. Once it has, you can sign into your myLCCC account.

Once you're logged in, start with the New Users guide to walk you through your first steps, including finding your ID number (which is in the Self-Service app in myLCCC).

Will you send me an admissions packet?

Yes, the Admissions Office can send you a packet. Please contact us so we can get the necessary information from you. You can use the “Request Information” link on this page to get started! 

How do I know who my advisor is?

Your academic advisor will be assigned based on your Pathway and program of study. Learn about our academic advisors and the advising process. 

Are there deadline dates on admission?

LCCC accepts applications throughout the year. It is a good idea, though, to begin the admission process as early as possible. You do need to submit your application at least two weeks prior to the block start-date that you wish to begin classes, so that you may have time to complete your enrollment steps. 

Do I need to take placement testing?

 No. We use your high school GPA or your ACT scores to help ensure you are taking the classes that are the right level for you, rather than requiring placement testing. This is one reason why it’s important that you submit your high school transcript as part of your admissions process. If you completed a high school equivalency such as HiSET or GED, then there may be different options for you about placement, and you should talk to your academic advisor or admissions representative about your specific situation. 

Do I have to apply for admission even if I’m only taking one class?

Yes, you must apply for admission prior to signing up for a class whether the course is for credit or audit, and regardless of degree or non-degree status. 

If I am younger than 18, can I still attend classes at LCCC?

Yes. Students who are still in high school must complete the concurrent/dual application for admission and meet the listed prerequisites of the course you are registering for. Please visit the Concurrent/Dual webpage for more details. 

How do I get my books?

Once you have registered, you may take your class schedule to the bookstore, or buy them online. The bookstore will help you locate the books required for each of your classes. You need your student ID number to pay for your books and payment is due at the time of purchase. 

Do you have Orientation?

Not in the traditional sense – instead, we send you the information that you need, so you don’t have to learn it all at once. Starting in March (for Fall students) or October (for Spring or Summer students), you’ll begin to receive the Golden Eagle Monthly (GEM). This email series will connect you with important dates, deadlines, and information about LCCC throughout your time here to help you be successful – and you could win prizes just for reading!

To welcome our new students, we host an event called The Kickoff. This gives you an opportunity to explore campus, learn about our resources, meet other students, and get to know the faculty and staff members who are here to help you succeed! Learn about The Kickoff.
