College Accreditation

To ensure you’re getting an education you can trust, you should only consider schools that are fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission – like Lamar Community College.  Accreditation lets you know that the college meets or exceeds the national standards for education.

LCC as an AQIP Institution

Lamar Community College is proud to be a participating institution in the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP).  AQIP is one of three processes through which a college or university can maintain full accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).

Through the AQIP processes, LCC has the opportunity to demonstrate that it meets the Higher Learning Commission’s accreditation standards and expectations through sequences of events that naturally align with those ongoing activities that characterize organizations striving to improve their performance.
