Tri-C, Lakeland, LCCC and Stark State: Here, Together, for You


August 13, 2020: When times get tough, people look to community colleges to chart a course for a better future. That has always been true in the past, and it’s true today as, for example, Northeast Ohio works to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.


The region’s four community colleges — Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®), Lakeland Community College, Lorain County Community College (LCCC), and Stark State College — are here to serve you at this critical moment.


These valuable institutions can help you keep moving forward even as uncertainty grips daily life. The schools have options to meet your needs whether you’re looking to start college, change careers, improve skills, or adjust plans due to health or financial concerns linked to the coronavirus crisis.


Tri-C, Lakeland, LCCC, and Stark State are committed to keeping tuition affordable and student loan debt low, with scholarships and financial aid packages that may allow one to attend at little to no cost.


The four schools offer high-quality courses to build a graduate’s résumé and eventually secure employment, connecting you to in-demand jobs in our communities. Examples of available educational opportunities include:

·         Certificates and fast-track training in programs like business, IT, and health care services;

·         Associate degrees and course credits that easily transfer to four-year schools to apply toward bachelor’s degrees; and

·         Professional development and certifications to update skills.

Hope and optimism grow at the same pace as knowledge at the institutions. Ask your family and friends. Odds are, more than a few of them have studied with at least one of the schools.


Collectively, nearly 100,000 students attend the four schools each year. They know what the schools known:  that community colleges are the go-to institutions for building a solid foundation for a career.


Fall semester courses begin later this month. Classes will be offered in-person and online, and significant safety measures have been implemented to help our communities prevent the spread of COVID-19.


In a world changed by the coronavirus, seize an opportunity to change yourself at a community college. There are skills to gain, lessons to learn and positive momentum to build as we collectively work toward a better tomorrow.


Enrollment is ongoing at all four colleges, with academic counselors available to help one find an individual path.


According to their respective presidents, Tri-C, Lakeland, LCCC, and Stark State are here to serve the student and community together—Marcia Ballinger, President, Lorain County Community College; Morris W. Beverage, Jr., President, Lakeland Community College; Alex Johnson, President, Cuyahoga Community College; and Para M. Jones, President, Stark State College.
