Veterans Admissions

Veterans Admission and Registration Process

Apply to the College in the Enrollment, Financial and Career Services division (located on the first floor of the Bass Library). For assistance, please contact Veterans and Military Services at (440) 366-7388 or LCCC makes it easy for veterans to enroll: 

  1. Complete an online LCCC Application for Admission to receive a student identification number.
  2. Meet with a member of the Veterans Certifying team to discuss and review veterans’ education benefits and scheduling options. Additional documents will require the veteran's signature.
  3. Request official high school and prior military and/or college transcripts to be forwarded directly to Lorain County Community College for formal credit evaluation. Please also submit a copy of your DD-214 Member 4 Copy for evaluation. Transcript Evaluation Request Forms are available online or in the Enrollment, Financial and Career Services division.

    Note: LCCC follows American Council on Education guidelines for evaluation of military transcripts. Military Transfer Assurance Guides (MTAGs) provide a statewide guarantee that certain types of military training, experience, and/or coursework align with existing college and university courses and will be awarded appropriate credit. The complete list of MTAGs approved by the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) can be found at College Credit for Military Experience - Partners | Transfer Credit Ohio

  4. Complete the placement assessment process through the Testing and Assessment Center (College Center Building, Room CC233). This process involves an evaluation of reading, writing and mathematical skills. Detailed information concerning the various exemptions to the placement assessment can be found in Assessment Information.
  5. Apply for Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see if you may be eligible to receive Federal Pell Grant.  This grant is not a loan and can help pay for tuition, fees, books and supplies not covered by VA-GI Bill or other Military benefits.
  6. Create your MyCampus account and complete the New Student Orientation and Welcome Survey. 
  7. Schedule an Appointment with your program-specific academic advisor in the Enrollment, Financial and Career Services division to register for classes.  If you are using GI Bill educational benefits, only required classes for your degree program will be approved. 

    NOTE:  Please be sure to identify yourself as a veteran and/or military-connected individual, including spouses and children of service members.

  8. Complete the Veterans & Military Memorandum of Understanding and Accelerated Credit Acknowledgement forms.
  9. To process benefits for each semester, a LCCC Certification Request Form must be submitted to LCCC's School Certifying Official team. Forms are semester-based and must be submitted before the term begins, with a recommended timeline of 30 days before the start of the semester. A fillable online Certification Form is available. An incomplete form will delay the process. A form is also required if there are any adds/drops/withdrawals from your schedule.  Without this form, our team does not know to process your schedule.

You may meet with a member of the Veterans School Certifying Official team to discuss and review Veterans’ Educational Benefits and enrollment options.
