Lansing Community College was founded in 1957 to meet the growing educational needs of the community â€” specialized and technical education opportunities were lacking and the college provided the necessary solution. The institution focuses on career and workforce development, general education, developmental education, and personal enrichment. In terms of educational partnerships with business, industry, and government, Lansing is considered a local, state, national, and international leader. Currently, Lansing provides more than 20,000 students with higher education and that number is growing annually. To better accomplish the mission of extending the reach of the college’s academics to more students, Lansing has developed a line of accredited associate degree programs that can be completed entirely online.
Lansing Community College provides certificates and associate degrees in arts, business, and applied science for students who may not have the ability to attend classes in the traditional format. Desire2Learn is the online delivery platform for the programs and provides all materials and resources necessary for course completion. By logging on to Desire2Learn, students can complete and submit assignments, view course information, participate in group or instructor discussion, and take tests. Lansing provides a variety of student services and resources to help students navigate the online courses. These include access to the assessment center, computer lab, academic advising, enrollment services and financial aid, help desk, library, MCCVLC program, and tutoring. With the flexibility afforded with an online degree program, students can achieve their academic goals while effectively managing other important obligations and a busy schedule.
Accreditation was awarded to Lansing Community College to award associate degrees by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Additional program-specific accreditation was granted by four other accrediting agencies.
Lansing Community College has an open enrollment policy with the intent to accept every person seeking higher education. In general, students will be evaluated on factors such as high school grade point average (GPA) or SAT/ACT scores by the admissions office. International applicants are required to submit proof of completion of a study program equivalent to U.S. high school, write a brief personal statement, provide proof of proficiency in English (if applicable), and supply proof of financial resources. Transfer students will be required to submit a record of completed college credit from an accredited institution in addition to the other application materials. Lansing recommends every student apply for financial aid at the time of application to the institution. For more information regarding admission requirements and procedures, click here.
