Lakeland Community College

Founded in 1967, Lakeland Community College was the first college in Ohio created by a vote of the people. True to its mission, Lakeland provides quality learning opportunities to meet the social and economic needs of the community.

Accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Lakeland offers more than 115 associate degree and technical certificate programs leading to high demand careers or transfer to four-year institutions. Lakeland’s Holden University Center was established in 2011 to provide further opportunity for those with higher educational goals. The Holden University Center offers bachelor’s and graduate degrees from a variety of four-year partner institutions. In addition to credit coursework, the college also offers noncredit workforce and professional development courses throughout the year. Through noncredit education professionals can earn their continuing education units, or CEUs, to keep their skills current and certifications up to date.

Offering day, evening, weekend and online classes, the college serves more than 13,000 credit and 7,000 noncredit students annually. Tuition remains one of the lowest in the state of Ohio.
