Placement Rates

Every year, LCCC conducts a survey of our graduates to see how they're doing and ask them if they have found employment and/or transferred to another college or university. LCCC is now required by the federal government, under the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, to share this information with all students and prospective students. This page provides a summary of the results of the 5 most recent placement surveys we have conducted. For other information that LCCC is required to disclose, see our Student Consumer Information page.
