Undecided Students

LCCC offers programs that launch students into their transfer and career plans based on nine Career Pathways. While LCCC strives to support students in timely degree completion, we also recognize the importance of selecting a program or pathway that aligns with students’ personal and long-term needs. Students who are undecided about their program of study are encouraged to engage in the exploration process early in their enrollment (ideally, within the first semester of attendance) to help inform academic and course registration planning.

Start With a Program and Career Pathway

Students often need time to explore career options before selecting a specific program major. Choosing one of LCCC’s nine academic programs and career pathways allows students up to 24 credit hours to choose a specific degree or certificate program – without the expense typically associated with changing majors.

Students who declare Universal Arts and/or Universal Science without an additional transfer plan (Ohio Guarantee Transfer Pathway, University Partnership etc) after 24 credit hours will have a hold placed on their account in MyCampus. To remove the hold, students will meet with their advisor to declare a transfer plan or file a request to have the plan waived. Requests can be submitted here: https://www.lorainccc.edu/admissions-and-enrollment/aa-as-policy-exceptions-appeal/

All students can access online and in-person tools to explore career options; however, students who are declared in an exploratory Program/ Career Pathway will receive additional outreach from their Advisor and Career Services to encourage the use of these tools and services.

MyPlan Online Assessment

MyPlan is an online assessment available to students, graduates and community members. Results of the assessment help identify potential career paths based on individual strengths and interests. This information then helps students choose the right academic program to prepare for and achieve their career goals. Learn more about MyPlan at https://www.lorainccc.edu/career-services/myplan/ 

Career Coach

Career Coach provides the most current local data on wages, employment, local job postings and associated education and training. This online tool connects students with academic programs at LCCC and provides information to help students make informed career decisions.
