Getting Started at LLCC
LLCC is excited to help you with your educational and career goals. Please review these steps on how to get started at LLCC. You may also contact us at any of the locations listed below and we will gladly help guide you through this process.
Submit the Admission form, available online at www.llcc.edu, click blue Apply Now box. The form is also available in person at any LLCC location.
Submit transcripts – official final high school transcripts with a posted graduation date or GED score reports and transcripts from all other college and/or universities must be submitted, along with official scores from ACT/SAT tests taken within the past five years. (Students registering before high school graduation should contact their high school office/counselor to submit unofficial transcripts for advising purposes, followed by official transcripts after graduation.)
Take a placement test(s), if necessary. If you have an ACT subscore of 22 or above in English, math or reading, or an SAT of 480 in verbal and math, you do not need to take that particular placement test. For testing hours and study guides, go to www.llcc.edu/placement-testing.
Attend required New Student Orientation (NSO). Register for NSO in person with Admission and Registration in Menard Hall at LLCC-Springfield or call 217.786.2292. Or, call your nearest LLCC location. New students who have completed college-level courses at a previous college are not required to attend orientation, but are encouraged to meet with an advisor prior to registering for classes.
Meet with an academic advisor to review life, career and educational goals, degree requirements and plan first-semester courses. Visit Advising, Counseling and Career Development Services in Menard Hall, LLCC-Springfield or call 786.2224 for an appointment. You may also contact any LLCC location to schedule an appointment.
Register for classes. (New, first-time students will plan their schedule and/or register for classes during their initial advising meeting.)
Pay tuition prior to due date. (If you register after the tuition due date, tuition is due at time of registration. For financial assistance options, go to www.llcc.edu and click on the green Paying for LLCC box.)
