Early College Credit for High School Students
LMC offers 3 ways for students to get a "jump start" on their college and career pathway:

Students should be at least 14 years old and have passed grade 8. There is no fee to enroll for an LMC course to be concurrently enrolled. All that is needed is to pay for books. For more information visit the LMC Concurrent Enrollment webpage.


2) Articulation: Articulation occurs when the high school teacher and theLMC professor get together to align an LMC college level course with a high school level course. This agreement allows the high school student an opportunity to earn FREE COLLEGE CREDIT! Check out the LMC High School Articulation webpage for more information and to find out if your school has articulated classes!


3) Dual Enrollment: Dual Enrollment is when an LMC course is taught at the high school. High School students enrolling in a dual enrolled course will recieve the grade they earn in the class on a college transcript. This college credit is free and transferrable to most community colleges, CSU's & UC's.
