President’s Message

Dr. Rusty Hunt

Welcome to Lenoir Community College, a comprehensive North Carolina community college that has been providing accessible educational, cultural, and social opportunities since 1958. It is a great time to be part of Lenoir Community College. We offer excellent educational opportunities delivered by a well-qualified, professional faculty using state-of-the-art equipment. Our student-oriented support staff is committed to providing high quality support services to assist you in achieving your educational goals. Lenoir Community College is truly committed to providing you with a quality education at a very reasonable price.

To assist you in meeting your education and career goals, Lenoir Community College offers seven degrees: the Associate in Arts Degree, the Associate in Engineering, the Associate in Applied Science Degree with more than 40 programs, the Associate in Fine Arts in Music Degree, the Associate in Fine Arts in Visual Arts degree, the Associate in Science Degree, and the Associate in General Education Degree. In addition, the College offers many certificate and diploma options requiring less than two years for completion. The College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

If your goal is to earn a four-year degree, our strong articulation agreement with the University of North Carolina System allows a seamless transition into all of the 16 universities in the system. Our college transfer graduates also experience a smooth and successful transition into most private colleges and universities. Upon completion of one of our many two-year programs, our graduates are equally as successful when moving directly into the workforce. Each degree, diploma, and certificate program offers a variety of classes at different times and in distance modes; we offer traditional day, evening, and weekend classes, as well as hybrid and Internet courses. This variety offers a degree of flexibility in establishing your own class schedules by selecting those classes that best suit your needs and learning style. Currently, we offer 549 internet college courses and 55 online programs, three of which are out Career and College Promise Pathways (CCP). Classes for high school students through CCP help teens enhance their study habits and critical thinking skills needed to succeed in college. Tuition is free. Eligible high school students may enroll in college level academic, career and technical education courses not otherwise available to them. These students receive college credit for classes successfully completed. Credits earned become part of their official college transcript.

Lenoir Community College makes significant contributions to economic development efforts in Lenoir, Greene, and Jones Counties. We are a partner in the recruitment of business and industry, and we train and retrain employees for the job market. LCC is involved in many other community economic and workforce development activities. Our Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division can offer one class or many to assist in local efforts to support our community business and industry.

At Lenoir Community College, we have something for everyone. We are here to help you achieve your goals, to live your dreams. I hope that you will choose to enroll in Lenoir Community College. We offer you a world of opportunities and the promise that we will assist you in any way with this important decision. For more information, please contact the Office of Admissions or any member of our faculty and staff.

My door is always open to you.
