Future Lake-Sumter Community College students have until Monday, August 6 to apply for admission for the Fall 2012 semester.
All new LSCC students--including first-time college students, transfer students, transient students, non-degree seeking students and others--must submit an application for admission before registering for classes. Applications received after August 6 will be processed for the Spring 2012 term. Fall classes will begin Monday, August 20.
"We urge prospective students to submit their applications as early as possible," said LSCC President Dr. Charles R. Mojock. "The earlier students apply, the more time they will have to register for classes and complete the process to embark on their first semester with us."
Students can learn more, complete an application and pay the $25 application fee at LSCC.edu/admissions, or call Admissions at (352) 365-3665. Additional steps to acceptance as a new LSCC student include submitting high-school graduation verification or college transcripts, taking a placement test if required and attending a New Student Orientation (optional for transfer students). LSCC strongly encourages students to register early for the best selection of classes.
Lake-Sumter Community College has seen two major milestones in 2012: This year marks half a century of service from LSCC to the communities of Lake and Sumter Counties. And on June 21, LSCC received approval to award bachelor's degrees.
The College plans to start the first classes of its first 4-year degree, Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Organizational Management, in January 2013. The BAS in Organizational Management will provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to start their own business or to obtain managerial positions within organizations. LSCC is also adding a new Associate in Science degree program in Environmental Science beginning in the Fall 2012 term.
The new bachelor's programs will also bring a new name for LSCC. The school's Board of Trustees approved the name Lake-Sumter State College June 19 in anticipation of offering baccalaureate degrees. The new name will be launched as part of a branding program currently under development.
