General Education - CERT

The General Education CORE Certificate prepares students for transfer to any four-year college or university in the state. It also satisfies many or all of the CORE requirements contained in the associate degree programs offered at LCC. The certificate is also a good choice for students who are undecided as to their major or program choice. Additionally, the certificate program will give students opportunity to sample various disciplines to determine their educational goals.
