New LC Students What's my first step?

You've successfully navigated the application process and now are an admitted student to LCSC! What's next? The next step is to get registered for classes.  

All new LCSC students attend a STAR (Student Advising and Registration) to get your first semester of classes selected. STAR provides information about financial aid, payments, what to expect from college and how to register. STAR allows new students the opportunity to ask questions and learn basic information about their college careers.  

Who attends STAR?  

  • New Academic Freshmen attend and are advised through Career & Advising Services during their initial semester(s).  
  • New Academic Transfer students will attend STAR and be advised by Career & Advising Services if you are not prepared to take college level math (MATH 108 or above) and English (ENGL 101 or above). If you are a transfer student with 14 college credits completed (students that have taken dual credits in high school are not considered transfer students) and are at college level in math and English, you will be advised by the division in which your major is offered. Contact information for your division is included in your acceptance letter from LC. If you are unsure as to your placement for English and math and know your scores from ACT, SAT or COMPASS, use this link to find where you've placed. Placement Chart
  • New Professional-Technical students need to contact the Professional-Technical advisors at (208) 792-2313 or visit them in Reid Centennial Hall, Room 203, for information regarding the next step in your advising process.
