LCCC voluntarily applied for Level 2 Accreditation of the Education Department and Level 1 accreditation of Business Administration and Management Department and Liberal Arts Department. The accreditation is necessary so that LCCC can continue offering Graduate School Programs. More than this though is the belief that a higher accreditation is an assurance that the local college provides quality education as an institution of higher learning to its students..
