We're excited for you to join us!
You're new to college if you have never attended a college or university. Even if you were enrolled in a dual-credit program in high school and then graduated, you are still considered a new student when you enroll as a college student at LLCC.
The checklist below will help you in starting your educational journey with us.
The first step in earning a degree or certificate from LLCC is to complete the application.
Once you've applied to LLCC, follow the steps below to be fully registered and ready to start attending classes.
✔ Activate your LLCC account.
Begin by logging in to your LLCC email via Microsoft and updating your password. We will send you important notifications via your LLCC email, so you'll want to be sure to check it regularly.
✔ Submit high school transcripts.
Get info on submitting high school transcripts or your high school equivalency exam (such as GED®). If available, also submit SAT/ACT scores.
