New or Returning Students Admissions
A NEW student is an individual who has never attended LCC and a RETURNING student is a former LCC student returning after an absence of one year or more. If you only plan to take a class to transfer back to another college or for personal enrichment, please select SPECIAL CREDIT/VISITING STUDENT (T90990) as your major. This is the first major listed in the dropdown list of majors.
If you are completing an online application for admission to LCC and don’t already have a Residency Certificate Number (RCN), you will apply for residency determination at the same time as you complete your admissions application on the CFNC website. If you already have an RCN number, you will need to provide this number on your admissions application. Applications cannot be submitted without this number.

Submit official transcripts from all colleges attended. Falsification or failure to supply the correct information may be considered grounds for rejection or dismissal. 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.
