LCC’s web team is available to help all departments and programs on campus keep their webpages updated. Please set a reminder to regularly review your pages for any needed changes. The link to the 5Star request form is located alongside many other helpful links on the Faculty & Staff page, in the “Campus Resources” box.
LCC’s college catalog for the 2020-2021
academic year is now live online. The catalog contains critical
information about life as a student, including an academic calendar, course
information and prerequisites, college policies and procedures, program
pathways, and more. The annual catalog does not contain specific course
section schedules, since that can change prior to each semester to meet the
needs of students.
The catalog creates a one-stop shop for information about LCC, minimizing the need to dig through our website for additional information. It is available online and as a PDF, allowing you to print it if necessary.
As part of the transition to this annual catalog, the college no longer creates a course schedule book that lists course sections for each semester. Instead, students can view section information in Banner.
No matter how short or long your time at LCC has been, we’re hoping you’ll reach into your memory banks and share with us what you know about the image below. Any bit of information about the image is helpful, including the location, the event, a person or a random story related to it.
Send information, including the image number, to Linnea Knapp, Records Information Specialist, LCC-RIM@lcc.edu, and perhaps you can help solve a mystery. Learn more about the LCC Archives and learn what mysteries have been solved about images previously featured in The Star.

This week, we’re applauding
“Testing Services always displays knowledge, courtesy and seamless efficiency, but especially during the past several months!” Andrea Tarry wrote in the award. “We work together with our high school dual enrollment students, High School Advantage students, and our Promise and H.O.P.E. Scholars. Every time I copy Testing Services on an email with a student who needs their services, they reply with detailed information in a fast and courteous way! They help each student with patience and kindness. Thank you, Testing Services, for all your help, especially during these difficult times!”
Applause also goes to HHS’ Monica Torres.
“The amount of craziness that comes with start of semester has been amplified by HHS having multiple new support staff who have spent more time at home due to COVID-19,” Leah Bloomquist wrote in the award. “It also doesn’t help that the semester is structured differently than any previous semester. Monica has been amazing in helping with everything from faculty pay to student overrides. This week, she was invaluable with late-registering/reinstating multiple students from my programs because I did not have access to register them myself. She is always there to lend a helping hand and is a great team player. The HHS divisional office is so lucky for having her. Thank you, Monica!”
This regular “Applause!” column features the good work you and your colleagues do around the college. It’s powered by Applause!

If you have not yet filled
out your household’s 2020 census, you need to do so by Sept. 30! It only takes
about 10 minutes, and your response can be completed online, by mail or by
The census is confidential and secure, and your personal information will not
be shared with anyone, including other government agencies. The census does NOT
ask about citizenship, and non-citizens should still fill it out. (The census
counts people who live in the U.S., not U.S. citizens.) It is available in
multiple languages online and by phone.
The census is critical to the future success of Michigan, impacting everything from how much federal funding our state gets to how many representatives we seat in Congress. Learn more from the Michigan census website or U.S. census website.
