Access (age 25 and over) and Second-Degree Checklist
For August 2013
To make your transition to life at Lynchburg as an Access (age 25 and over) or second-degree student as smooth as possible, we offer programs and events specifically for you. We're also available to answer your questions any time.
Get ready for LC in five easy steps:
Step 1: Contact Your Academic Advisor
Around the middle of April, if you have submitted your reservation deposit, you will receive a letter with your advisor's name and contact information. You should contact your advisor as soon as you are able in order to discuss your class schedule.
Be sure to send your final transcripts from all previous institutions you've attended and reviewed your transcript evaluation so you do not enroll in courses you do not need to take.
Before you meet with your advisor,
- Review your transfer credit evaluation and have it with you. You should receive this from the Registrar’s office.
- Become familiar with the academic catalog and the course requirements for the major(s) in which you are interested.
- Come prepared with any questions you may have regarding your major, career interests, internships, etc.
In addition to helping you plan your schedule, your advisor can:
- Help you create a long-term plan for graduation
- Tell you about major-specific clubs, organizations, and other opportunities
- Advise you about opportunities for internships, research, or study abroad programs
- Help you explore post-graduate education and career opportunities
Step 2: Register for Classes Online
After you talk with your academic advisor, you can register for classes online at myLC beginning April 23.
You will receive instructions for how to register online from the Registrar’s office. If you have any questions about online registration, please call 434.544.8218.
Please note: If a class you want is closed, speak to your advisor. Your advisor may suggest alternatives that will still help you progress in your program.
Step 3: Submit Health Form (optional)
As an Access or second degree student, you are not required to submit a health form, but you cannot use the health services on campus without submitting the form. Return the form to the Health Center in Hundley Hall.
To get more information about the health center and details about the form, visit the Health Center web pages or contact them at 434.544.8357.
Step 4: Check In
All new students must check into the College before they can attend orientation or begin classes. At check-in, you will get your student ID, parking pass, and keys to your room if you are living on campus, and take care of all other campus business. (If you need a parking pass, please bring your driver’s license, proof of insurance, and car registration with you when you come to check-in.)
You may check in from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday, August 15 in Schewel Hall, before you come to orientation. The process usually takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Step 5: Attend Access SOAR
Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.
Burton Student Center, East Room
We look forward to meeting you at our Access and Second Degree Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR). This is an evening program designed to help you transition to life as a student at Lynchburg College.
