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 the Veteran and Military Service Member Center at(440) 366-7378 or veterans@lorainccc.edu. LCCC makes it easy for veterans to enroll: 

  1. Complete an online LCCC Application for Admission at www.lorainccc.edu/admissions to receive a student identification number. 
  2. Meet with a member of our Veteran’s Certifying team to discuss and review your veterans’ education benefits and scheduling option. Additional documents will require your 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. Transcript evaluation request forms are available in the Enrollment, Financial and Career Services division and online at www.lorainccc.edu/veterans. 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 to 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 transfercredit.ohio.gov (click on "Military").
  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.

To process benefits for each semester, a veterans’ certification request form must be submitted to LCCC's School Certifying Official team. Forms must be submitted before the term begins. A fillable online certification form is available at www.lorainccc.edu/veterans . An incomplete form will delay the process.
