Parents & Family

You’re playing an important role in helping your student prepare and plan for college, which is an exciting milestone. It’s also a time of transition as students are finding their places in the world. We invite you to learn more about LLCC's many educational programs, student services and cost savings through our website.

Visiting our Springfield campus or one of our Outreach Centers, either in person or virtually, is helpful in determining if LLCC is right for your student.

Knowing the steps to take begins with identifying your educational journey and program of interest.

If interested in receiving financial aid, file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at Use the LLCC school code 007170. Each year on Oct. 1, the FAFSA becomes available for the next (summer-fall-spring) school year. Have questions? Visit LLCC Financial Aid or contact us at or 217-786-2237.

The scholarship application process is open online from Dec. 1-March 1 for the following academic school year. (Example: Application submitted Dec. 1, 2021-March 1, 2022 would be eligible for 2022-2023 scholarships.)

Only one application form is needed to apply for all scholarships. Students submitting a complete application are considered for all available scholarships for which they are eligible. Visit for more information.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Once a student turns 18 or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, these rights transfer from the parents to the student. Forms to withhold or allow specific release of information may be obtained from LLCC Admission and Records. Note: This form must be filled out in front of an LLCC employee or staff member.

Available courses can be viewed in LoggerCentral. (Get more information on how to navigate LoggerCentral.)

Once new students have applied, attended New Student Orientation and met with their student success coach, they can register by phone or online by signing in to LoggerCentral. Students are encouraged to contact their success coach to discuss course options.

Students may call the Springfield campus (217-786-2292), text 217-387-8585, or call an LLCC Outreach Center in Jacksonville (217-243-6699), Beardstown (217-323-4103), Taylorville (217-786-2754) or Litchfield (217-786-3401). In-person services are available by appointment.

Once enrolled, students will be provided important dates, and email will be the primary way the college communicates this and other key information. Students are strongly encouraged to check their LLCC email regularly.

Many high school students are interested in getting an early start on their college education. LLCC has partnered with several area high schools to offer this opportunity through concurrent enrollment programs. Options include:

  • College Now (taught by LLCC faculty at the college)
  • Dual Credit (taught by approved high school teachers at the high school)

To see what options might be available at your school, students can check with their high school guidance counselors or contact LLCC Concurrent Enrollment at, 217-786-2584 or, 217-786-4684.

The goal of LLCC’s Police Department is to ensure a safe environment for our campus’ students, staff, faculty and visitors. We encourage all new students to become familiar with our location (upper floor of Sangamon Hall, South), as well as how to contact us if needed: 217-786-2278 (non-emergency) or 911 (emergency). For further information regarding security and safety on campus, we encourage all community members to read the recent LLCC Annual Security Report and consider how the information it contains can help you and the LLCC community, prevent and protect against crime. Hard copies are available at the LLCC Police Department.
