LCCC moved from an access agenda to a completion agenda without losing ground on student outcomes

As Lorain County Community College (LCCC) moved from an access agenda to a completion agenda, they were challenged to navigate this shift without losing ground on student outcomes — critical to retain existing performance funding.

LCCC partnered with Civitas Learning® to make meaningful data available to students, educators, and leadership across campus. They wanted to improve the student experience, refine academic pathways, and scale personalized student outreach.

Leveraging a Civitas Learning system of intelligence and a portfolio of Civitas solutions. LCCC has streamlined registration, planning, and advising for students. For example, instead of having students sort through 2,500 potential schedules, LCCC has given students the tools they need to plan their education and select courses that will get them to completion most effectively — without having to sacrifice life, work, cost, family, or other obligations.
