Lorain County Community College has been named one of the most affordable community colleges in the nation by the U.S. Department of Education.

“Affordability is key to keeping LCCC accessible to our community’s residents. This national recognition reflects the long-standing commitment to ensuring that quality higher education is within everyone’s reach” commented LCCC President Marcia Ballinger. “We’re grateful for the tremendous support from Lorain County residents since LCCC was created as Ohio’s first community college with a permanent campus in July 1963.”

LCCC was one of only two Ohio two-year institutions to be included in the list of institutions recognized for its affordability. Eastern Gateway Community College also made the list ranking 39th. LCCC’s net price of $3,020 is $4,327 lower than the national average ($7,347) for the sector. LCCC ranked 30th nationally out of 93 public, two-year colleges that made the Lowest Net Prices report issued by the College Affordability and Transparency Center (CATC). This report reflects the lowest (bottom 10 percent) academic year charges for each sector.

The U.S. Department of Education calculates average net price subtracting the average amount of federal, state/local government, or institutional grant or scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees, books and supplies, and the weighted average for room and board and other expenses. Average net price is for full-time beginning undergraduate students who received grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution.

LCCC and its University Partnership are the best value for associate and bachelor’s degrees for Lorain County residents. More than half of the degrees offered through the University Partnership are three plus one degrees, which means that students can enroll in courses for three years at LCCC tuition rates and just one year from the university partner, all here on LCCC’s campus.

Fall semester begins on August 22. Enrollment is now in progress at the Elyria campus and at the community learning centers. Register today for the best selection of courses.
