If you’re thinking of advancing your education or entering a new career field, the options of educational institutions may seem endless. Many factors come into play when choosing a college and doing your research is crucial. You’ll need to know that the college you choose will support you from enrollment through graduation and beyond. With this in mind, we think Knowledge to Work’s partner institution Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) may be the right fit for you. Read on to find out seven benefits of attending LFCC.

1. Online Courses

One of the many benefits of attending LFCC is that many courses are offered fully online. In fact, some degree programs can be completed entirely online! LFCC has several locations in Virginia but is available to students anywhere through its online programs. For maximum convenience and flexibility, check out LFCC’s online course offerings.

2. Variety of Programs

LFCC offers over 75 different degree and certificate programs. Whether you’re interested in a short-term program so you can start working in the career of your choice sooner or you’re looking for a program you can later transfer to a four-year college, LFCC has options for you! Offerings include programs in healthcare, engineering, business, education, information technology, art, manufacturing, and many others. Explore the career pathways available to you through LFCC’s programs here.

3. Guaranteed Transfer Agreements

Transferring to a four-year college from a community college can be a challenge for some. LFCC students, however, enjoy the benefit of over 40 guaranteed transfer agreements with four-year institutions. This means if you finish a transfer degree (an associate of arts & science degree) at LFCC and meet the admissions qualifications at the 4-year school of your choice from those that LFCC maintains a transfer agreement with, you receive automatic acceptance to that institution.

4. Safety Amid a Pandemic

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, feelings of uncertainty and safety concerns have been at the forefront for many. Thankfully, LFCC has put in place thorough and robust guidelines to keep its community safe. Many more courses are offered online, students can access programs like tutoring via Zoom, and they can work with their academic advisors over the phone and by email. Read more about LFCC’s COVID-19 prevention response and its guidelines for student services.

5. Vibrant Campus Life

While in-person Student Life & Engagement-sponsored activities and events have been canceled for now due to the pandemic, activities and events continue in full swing digitally! Past events include online concerts and art contests showcasing student talents, game shows (with prizes!), open forums with LFCC’s president, a Halloween Costume Contest Runway, trivia events, a Veterans Day Celebration, and many more! See upcoming and past events on LFCC’s CampusLiVe page.

6. Student Support

Furthering your education is a great step toward fulfilling your career dreams, but you may face many obstacles during your higher education journey. That’s why LFCC has established programs to support its students academically and otherwise. Supports are available for specific populations, including veterans, international students, foster youth, transfer students, students with disabilities, non-native English speaking students, and general support is available to the entire student body. Services available to students include tutoring, academic advising, career services, access to campus resources like the LFCC Food Pantry, and others.

7. Financial Assistance

The cost of attending LFCC is only about 1/3 of attending an average 4-year public college in Virginia. If that isn’t motivation enough to choose LFCC, several financial assistance opportunities are also available. Scholarships, grants, work-study employment positions, and student loans are all options for students. Discover the financial aid opportunities that may be available to you here.
