The Early College at Lansing Community College

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

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.

Lansing Community College

LCC courses are available for students to check out on their website… www.lcc.edu … look under schedule of courses.  When students are looking at the courses, they need to pay attention to the prerequisites.  MOST LCC courses have minimum levels on the accuplacer or ACT/SAT tests that students MUST have in order to be able to sign up for the course.  Many LCC courses also have pre-requisites of other courses that students have to take before they are eligible to sign up for the course.

Students MUST apply to LCC before they turn in their paperwork to Student Services.  We must have a student’s LCC banner ID in order for them to dual enroll.

Students must turn in all of the correct paperwork that is listed on the student services website.  This includes the ELPS Dual Enrollment Application, LCC’s Dual Enrollment Approval Form (form must match a student’s age), and LCC Dual Enrollee Billing Authorization form. Paperwork is due to Student Services no later than May 22, 2018 for the 2018-19 school year.

After all of the paperwork has been turned in to Student Services and processed, students are then required to log on to their LCC student account and register for the class they wish to dual enroll.  NOTE:  ELHS will only pay for the courses that a student indicates on their approved form.

Michigan State University

 MSU courses are available for students to check out on their website…. www.msu.edu... Type in “Schedule of Courses” in the MSU search feature.  When students are looking at the courses, they need to pay attention to the prerequisites. 

Students must turn in all of the correct paperwork for MSU.  This includes the ELPS Dual Enrollment Application, MSU form for all high school ages, and MSU Billing Form. MSU also requires ACT/SAT scores, as well as AP scores.  Score reports must be included with the paperwork that you turn in to student services. 

Once Student services receives all of the completed paperwork, we will send it to GATE (MSU gifted and Talented Office).  Once GATE receives the paperwork they will create an account for the dual enrolled student and register that student in the course. 

Kendall College

 Visit http://www.kcad.edu/admissions/dual-enrollment/  and take care of all of the steps that Kendall requires. 

Students must turn in the ELPS Dual Enrollment Application to student services.  NOTE: You must also turn in the form on the Kendall dual enrollment page to student services with your ELPS form.

Once student services receives both forms, they will send to Kendall.  Once Kendall receives the forms from student services, they will start contacting you through email if there are additional things that they need.  Make sure that you read all communication from them, and take care of their requests in a timely manner.
