Graduates from high schools recognized by the Ohio Department of Education (includes chartered, non-chartered, home school, private or public), or the Department of Education from the student’s state of legal residence if not Ohio, are admitted based on their high school diplomas.

Students that have completed their final year of instruction at home or from an unaccredited homeschool association are admitted upon providing, along with their diploma, the official letter of excuse issued by the district superintendent for the student's final year of home education.

The high school transcript may be waived for admission purposes if student have earned Associate, Bachelor, or higher degree from a U.S. regionally accredited college or university upon providing official transcript with conferral date.

All admitted students are REQUIRED to participate in the assessment placement process unless qualifying as an exception (see information on Placement Assessment). High school graduates (under the age of 18 at time of enrollment) must provide a high school transcript that indicates their date of graduation or a General Education Development (GED) certificate. This must be provided along with the LCCC application for admission in order for enrollment to be processed.
