STEP 1 – Application for General College Admission:
Complete an online LCC Application for Admission. Select Associate Degree Nursing A1030N as your major. Acceptance into a Pre–Health Sciences Program does not guarantee acceptance into the Health Sciences Program.

If it is determined that you have attended a college that was not listed on your application, the transcript will be required. If you are unable to submit an official transcript due to a hold on your account at the college, you will be ineligible to apply at this time.
STEP 3 – Placement Assessment:
Take any required placement assessments or qualify for a waiver. You may use NC DAP scores taken at another community college. If your math scores or your developmental math classes are more than 5 years old and you have not completed a qualifying college level math class, you will need to retest.
