Students are notified in April of their academic advisor. Traditionally we try to assign students to an advisor in their major or in the associated School. You’ll receive an email providing you with your advisor’s name and contact information.
The best way to get in contact with your advisor is through their Lynchburg College email. If you are not able to get in contact with your advisor after a few attempts, please contact the Academic Achievement Center at 434.544.8339 and make an appointment with the Director of Academic Advising.
Traditionally Access students can start registering for courses in May. Before registering for courses you need to make an appointment with your academic advisor by phone or in person to talk with them about your course schedule. They’ll provide you with the instructions of how to register for courses online through our student portal online (MyLC).
When you have your advising appointment, please bring with you a copy of your transfer evaluation, along with a list of any additional courses you have taken, or are taking, which are not yet processed as transfer credits.
The Registrar’s Office conducts all official credit evaluations. Within two weeks after being admitted an official credit evaluation will be mailed. If you complete courses after your initial credit evaluation is received it is required that you submit an updated transcript for evaluation.
If you need to take the foreign language placement test, please contact Academic and Career Services at 434.544.8339 or email to request access to the placement test.
Lynchburg College does not offer childcare for its students.
There are several opportunities for campus involvement. Lynchburg College offers a wide range of clubs and organizations. We have all kinds of groups for students to get involved in such as, academic/departmental, social, music & performing arts, spiritual, service, and club sports.
Many groups have informational meetings at the beginning of each semester. This information is usually sent out through campus email. There’s also a Club and Organization Fair each fall and spring semester to let students know what groups are active on campus and to meet members. To learn more about getting involved check out the clubs and organizations online.
