Admissions and Enrollment
New Student Enrollment Process
If you are a student who has never applied to LCCC or completed a credit course, the steps below are everything you need to do to apply, enroll, and prepare for classes at LCCC. This process is best for those who have recently graduated from high school.
Apply for Admission
- Complete the Application for Admission and submit to Enrollment Services or Records Office.
- Submit the following document to the Enrollment Services or Records Office:
- A copy of your I-797 Notice of Action from USCIS for your I-821D application for Deferred Action status.
Please allow five business days for processing after a complete application and supporting documentation are submitted for an admission decision. If your deferred action and employment authorization document (EAD) have already expired or the DACA application is still pending, you may apply for admission, but you will not be considered for Ohio residency classification and your tuition fees will be calculated at the out-of-state tuition rate.
Residency Status for Tuition Surcharge
Follow these steps to demonstrate your residency status and qualify for in-state tuition:
- Complete all necessary steps for admission to the college (above).
- Complete all necessary steps for enrollment (above).
- Submit Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Residency Application and all required supporting documents listed below to the Records Office:
- DACA Residency Application
- Copy of I-797 Notice of Action document indicating Deferred Action granted
- Copy of Driver’s License or State ID
- Wait for the official result. No further action required if approved.
If residency is granted, the in-state tuition rate will be valid until the expiry date of your DACA status, at which time you can submit new documentation to be considered for an extension of the in-state tuition rate.
Financial Aid information
DACA students are not eligible for any Federal Government financial aid program (i.e. Pell Grants, student loans, Federal Work Study). However, you are encouraged to apply for LCCC and other scholarships. You are also eligible to apply for student employment opportunities on campus at our Career Services Office located in the Bass Library Building.
Fields of study
Please be aware that DACA students may face barriers in completing certain programs of study. For example, programs that require a practicum or licensure may be restricted based on Ohio law to U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Once you have been admitted to LCCC, contact your academic advisor to discuss your options.
International Student Admissions
Persons holding immigrant status such as permanent resident, refugee, or asylum, may apply for admission for any enrollment term. Please use the LCCC domestic application.
A non-immigrant student is one who is a citizen of a country other than the United States, who is authorized to remain in the United States for a temporary period as an F-1, J-1, or H-4 visa student and who intends to return to his or her home country.
LCCC is authorized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Citizenship Enforcement Services to issue the required Certificate of Eligibility for F-1 students (also known as the Form I-20) as well as the J-1 Exchange Visitor visa (also known as the Form DS-2019). New students will be considered for January (Spring), and August (Fall) semesters. Returning/Current students may also attend June (Summer) semester. F-1 and J-1 visa students must retain full time (12 or more credit hours) status at all times and remain in good academic standing.
- The application must be filled in completely. You must include the complete street address of your residence in your home country (a post office box is not acceptable), home country telephone number, email address as well as a contact number of any local relative or sponsor in the United States.

If the documents are issued in English, you can submit these; otherwise you must also provide an official English translation.
- You must prove successful secondary school completion (such as school grade report, diploma, graduation document or secondary exam certificate results). Secondary school completion typically means at least 12 years of education. Submit your final year grade report and exam results.
- Include post-secondary, university-level, or English language study information, educational records and/or grade reports.
3) Proof of Financial Eligibility
- Students must have adequate funds to cover all expenses for the first full year of study at LCCC and must be able to demonstrate such to the American Consular officer who will consider your visa application.
