New London Local Schools to Join LCCC MyUniversity Program
Lorain County Community College welcomes the New London Local School District to
the MyUniversity program.

New London joins other districts like Columbia, Avon Lake, Lorain, Midview, Amherst and
North Olmsted in providing the MyUniversity combined high school and college pathway for its students.

“MyUniversity allows students to transition from high school to college with confidence
because they will know what it takes to succeed in college,” said LCCC President Roy A. Church.

“The MyUniversity program gives New London students a pathway to a full college experience.  It’s a head start to help them begin to define and achieve their college and career goals,” said New London Superintendent Brad Romano. “It can also help them build college skills and find their direction at their own pace.”

The MyUniversity plan is the second phase of Lorain County Community College’s “Our
Promise” initiative, which began with a tuition guarantee announced in March 2014. “MyUniversity is one significant way we are delivering on our promise to deepen the impact of the University Partnership program,” Church said.

MyUniversity will significantly increase the number of high school students who can
successfully earn free college credit while still in and at their high school. As the MyUniversity programs grows at New London it will enable high school students to even go as far as earning an associate degree simultaneously with their high school diploma. Students can then continue on to earn a bachelor’s degree by as early as age 20 in high demand careers through LCCC’s University Partnership program. In doing so, students can save over 80 percent of the cost of a bachelor’s degree through MyUniversity, essentially saving families tens of thousands of dollars in college debt.

“This program removes the traditional boundaries to college access and has the potential to
significantly increase the number of individuals with a degree that will help them compete in the global economy,” said Church.

This combined high school and college experience creates the roadmap for student success in
college and beyond. It builds pathways to bachelor’s degrees in these areas:
   • Business Administration
   • Computer Science and Engineering
   • Psychology
   • Education
   • Biology
   • Accounting
   • IT – Computer Information Systems
   • and more

MyUniversity will also connect students to these and other careers earlier using LCCC’s
MyPlan and the professionals in Career Services, “Who will help align academics and career goals through their resources, expertise and tools,” Church added.

MyUniversity is based on the success of programs like Titan College and the Early College
High School. Titan College provides students in the Lorain City Schools with college classes that are taught on the Lorain High School campus. Students may enter Titan College at any grade level. Early College High School allows students starting in the ninth grade to participate in a combined high school and college experience on the LCCC campus. 

For more information regarding this program, parents and students are encouraged to attend the informational meeting scheduled for February 17th at 5:30pm or contact the HS Guidance Department.
