Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

It's a cheaper option for college, but you get a great education.
Lily from Owosso, MI
Getting involved with cultural events started with work when I had the opportunity to teach classes on diversity and inclusion. I found it so rewarding that I became a member of the Diversity and Inclusion Council. I have been honored to have been taught by some wonderful instructors at LCC on Diversity in the Workplace.
Sandy from Lansing, MI
LCC is a great way to start out college. You can get the same 60 credits that you can get at a 4-year university for half the price. When you go in for a job interview, the employer will not look at where you received your associates degree if you have a bachelors degree. If you end up getting the job you will have far less loans to pay back, because you saved money by paying LCC tuition rates. LCC also allowed me to work downtown for the State of Michigan while I went to school. This helped me save money for tuition and gave me valuable work experience for my resume'. If I went to a 4-year university right away I would have not been able to have the job and make the money that I did.
Robert from Westphalia, MI
It's not very expensive and the experience is great.
The college is more affordable but still just like other colleges isn't cheap.
David from Williamston, MI
This college offers a great price for the education. There is not a better bargain anywhere else around this state. Especially for those that qualify for the in-district fees. For all those that don't, LCC is still almost half the price of every single university.
Kristen from Morrice, MI
You learn a lot, it's not that much money and to be a full time student, you only have to sign up for three or four classes.
Kourtney from Lansing, MI
Awesome price for in-district students!!! Out of district rates are more expensive and international rates are going up by 27%.
Emily from Mason, MI
Every check $300 per class which is a good deal in my book!
