Students may matriculate in degree, professional certificates and certificate programs on a full - or part-time basis and enroll in classes offered in the day and evening. Students may extend their coursework beyond the number of semesters outlined in the program profiles. Non-matriculated students may attend, taking credit and non-credit courses days or evenings.
Of the 222 full-time degree/certificate-seeking students entering LRCC in the fall of 2008, 79 completed their programs within 150% of the normal time, resulting in a graduation rate of 36%.
Lakes Region Community College offers over forty degrees, professional certificates and certificates. In addition to these programs, there exists many opportunities to start your education here and continue your education with other institutions of higher education. Our students now benefit from many articulation agreements and guaranteed transfer programs to many other colleges. The transfer process can be started at any time while attending Lakes Region CC. It’s never too early, however, the sooner the process is started the easier it is to meet transfer requirements and maximize transfer credits and options.
With increased transferability of courses and programs, greater opportunities and possibilities for continuing education now exist. The Associate in Arts curriculum is designed to offer students an opportunity to take the first two years of a liberal arts college curriculum at Laconia and transfer to four-year institutions. Students may start these programs in the fall, spring or summer. Grades of a C or better are generally required to transfer. It is important for students interested in transferring or continuing their education to work closely with their faculty advisors, the college transfer counselor and the institution to which they intend to transfer.
