Students We Serve
General Studies Majors
Transfer and degree-seeking students who are unsure about an academic major follow a general studies curriculum. General studies majors will be assigned an adviser to explore and clarify their career and academic goals.
Students who are working on prerequisites for the nursing program meet with advisers in the Advising Center. Please refer to the nursing program website for basic information before you meet with an adviser. Transfer students should bring unofficial transcripts to the advising session so that advisers can help students understand how and whether courses apply toward the prerequisites. The nursing department and the Advising Center offer monthly nursing program information sessions (listed on the nursing program website), where students can ask questions of representatives from the nursing program, Advising Center, Financial Aid and Student Records departments.
If you are a brand new student to LCCC (never taken classes with us before), your academic advising process begins in the Advising Center. All students new to LCCC are required to meet with an adviser in the Advising Center prior to registering for their first semesters. The purpose of this contact is to introduce new students to the college, its academic policies and processes, and to provide students a venue for asking questions and for seeking information. Prior to this meeting, students must have either taken the COMPASS placement test, have ACT scores that meet the college’s standards, or have submitted copies of college transcripts.
Students who have attended LCCC before but are returning after an absence can start in our Advising Center, but may be referred to their faculty adviser. After your first semester, students who have declared majors are assigned faculty or program area advisers with whom they meet for advising each semester. Students who are undeclared or general studies majors remain with the Advising Center for their advising needs. We also meet with students who are on academic probation and/or suspension.
If you’re a transfer student, you should have official transcripts from all
previously attended institutions sent to the Student Records Office
as soon as possible. Once transcripts are received, they will be evaluated and you will be able to see the transferred credits in your EaglesEye account, under My Unofficial Transcript. At that point, if you have questions about how the credits apply toward your major at LCCC, you may contact the faculty adviser for your major and/or the Student Records Office.
