Summer & Fall Brings New Options at LCC

Lamar Community College


(Lamar, Colorado, April 3, 2012) Lamar Community College has opened registration for summer and fall courses. This is an excellent opportunity for prospective students to apply for admission, select a plan of study that meets their academic and career goals, register for courses, and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to qualify for many types of college, state and federal merit and need-based aid. Returning students can also build schedules to accommodate work and other activities. Beginning now can save a considerable amount of stress for new and returning students.

Summer is the perfect time to take a few courses to accelerate or complete a program of study. This is especially true for recent high school graduates who may be within a semester of graduating with an associate degree. Completed Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees transfer in their entirety to applicable bachelor’s programs in most Colorado colleges and universities.

This year, LCC has planned 15-week, 10-week, and two 5-week summer sessions. Each start and/or end on different dates to accommodate diverse schedules. While Cosmetology, Health IT, and some business courses will run as 15-week courses (beginning on April 30), the other sessions contain numerous guaranteed transfer and developmental classes needed to get a jump start on a program of study. The majority of summer classes start on May 21 (10-week and May 5-week sessions), with the last 5-week session beginning on June 25. All on-campus summer courses end on or before August 10. Additionally, CCCOnline has a summer session running June 4 – August 12.

Summer is an excellent time for students who wish to brush up on their basic math, English or reading skills to do so in accelerated courses, before moving on to college-level classes. Most new students must be assessed in math, reading, and language skills prior to enrolling in college-level courses. If needed, taking developmental courses in the summer can save a significant amount of time and build students’ momentum as they enter the fall semester.

Pre-Nursing students can accelerate their studies by taking Anatomy & Physiology I & II (BIO 201/202) or Microbiology (BIO 204), all prerequisites for entrance to LCC’s Nursing Program each fall. Current Nursing students continuing toward a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and those students pursuing an Associate of Science may be interested in LCC’s summer offerings of Pathophysiology (BIO 216) or Intro to Chemistry II (CHE 102) in the ten-week session.

Next fall, LCC will offer an array of on-campus and online offerings to accommodate busy schedules. Examples of these include:

Welding: Courses necessary to complete a Welding Certificate will be offered Monday-Thursday, late afternoon – evening.

Framing: Construction Technology offerings, Floor, Wall & Roof Framing classes (CAR 121, 122, and 170) will meet Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6:00 – 7:40 p. (Students will frame a storage shed.)

Archeology: Intro to Archeology (ANT 107) will meet Mondays 6:00 – 8:30 p. Students are expected to have an opportunity to visit an archeological site.

Historic Preservation: Offered online, Introduction to Historic Preservation (HPP 110) and Historic Preservation Research and Documentation (HPP 120) will fit into most schedules.

Theater Appreciation: While most on-campus courses run Monday – Thursday, LCC will offer Theater Appreciation (THE 105) 10:00 a – 12:30 p on Fridays.

Jewelry and Metal Work: Popular with both degree-seeking students and community members, Jewelry and Metal Work (ART 133) will meet Tuesday evenings from 5:30 – 9:40 p and allows students of all ages to explore their creativity.

The college is actively pursuing new program offerings in Barrel Racing Training – an extension of LCC’s Horse Training & Management, and Renewable Energy for this fall. Additionally, numerous advancements will be made in existing programs.
