Start Your Semester Right! - Enrollment Services

Application deadline for Spring 2022 admission is Wednesday, Dec. 22.

We are excited to welcome you to campus for the new semester! As you work through your enrollment steps and need assistance, we are happy to help you! All services are still available via phone, e-mail, and your student portal, including Satisfactory Academic Progress status, financial aid awards, Navigate, registration and planning, and your books and schedule

Please note that this is a busy time of year at the College. Your kindness and patience with staff is appreciated. 

Most phone calls, e-mails and texts will be returned within 48 business hours.

Please evaluate your own health and do not come to campus if you are sick or quarantining. We would be happy to assist you remotely, see below for more information.

Enrollment services are available now through Jan. 7. If you plan to register for spring classes, you will need to complete the enrollment process by Jan. 7, which is the last day to register for spring classes. 

To make the enrollment process as efficient as possible, be prepared to provide the following items:

  • High school transcripts
  • ACT or SAT scores
  • Any previous college transcripts

Unofficial copies of these items are great for us to start working with you and we can provide information to order any official copies as needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have been approved you will receive notification to your LMC e-mail. 

Visit the Bookstore website and select the bookstore for your campus and input your class schedule. A booklist will appear – you will need to purchase or rent all required books. 

Typically 24 hours before your class begins.

Classes are canceled for a variety of reasons. The most common are for low enrollment or not being able to secure an instructor.
