Start your 4 year degree at LSC – then transfer

We should mention that, ah, we don’t actually offer a four year degree. But! we know how to prepare our students to earn one. We offer small class sizes and one-on-one attention that can mean the difference between standing out from the crowd and getting lost in it. Spend your first two years at LSC – then transfer to a four year university. Not only will you leave LSC prepared to enter a larger learning environment, but you’ll have earned a quality, low-cost education (and you’ll have saved a lot of money).
