The Three for Two tuition discount program will return to Lamar Community College this summer.
Through this program, students may enroll in nine or more credits and receive a tuition-only scholarship for up to $446.70, a scholarship equal to three resident on-campus credits. For many, this will mean that when they enroll in two courses, LCC will scholarship the third.
"Learning doesn't stop in the summer at LCC," said Linda Lujan, LCC President. "We are pleased to offer this opportunity to our students and communities."
In 2016, the program's first year, the Three for Two promotion was only available to Colorado residents for on-campus courses during the summer term. In 2017, LCC expanded this scholarship opportunity to include out of state students and online courses. Today, the Three for Two scholarship is available to all types of students and the scholarship amount is still equal to a three-credit, resident, on-campus course.
"We started this program because we wanted to help students with the cost of college by providing them an opportunity to take an extra class on us," said Dr. Annessa C. Stagner, Dean of Academic Services at LCC.
"Whether they are a graduating high school senior, someone returning home from university for the summer or a community member who likes exploring new subjects, this incentive program should help meet the needs of a variety of students."
Scholarships will be funded by Federal Pell Grant or LCC scholarship funds or a combination thereof. If a student's account balance is covered by other aid or scholarships, this scholarship will not be refunded to the student.
