The Early College at Lansing Community College

The Early College at LCC offers up to an associate degree, tuition free, for students in participating high schools in the Ingham ISD service area who will be starting their junior year of high school. Enrolled students will attend class all day on LCC's main campus for grades 11-13 and will no longer attend high school.

Students are expected to complete the program in three years. After three years, they will have earned their high school diploma, up to sixty college credits, an associate degree, or a technical certification, tuition free. These credits are transferable to most Michigan and national colleges and universities.

The Early College at LCC will place an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) which could lead to many career paths. Careers in these areas have grown the most consistently over the last generation, and that is expected to continue. This is a rigorous program for motivated students.

Post-Secondary Enrollment

NOTE:  Counselors are happy to help student’s select appropriate courses. We do require that students come to those appointments prepared with some idea of the areas that they are hoping to dual enroll.  Students can accomplish this by becoming familiar with the schedule of courses featured on LCC/MSU websites, and having looked at what courses LCC/MSU offers.
