LFCC Middle College Eligibility Components


All prospective Middle College applicants must:

STEP I: Take the grade level assessment. 

The assessment will be offered in the Office of Transition Programs. Young adults between the ages of 18-24 must demonstrate a minimum level of 9th grade in Reading and Applied Math. If the required score is achieved, the prospective student can proceed to Step 2.

STEP 2: Complete an LFCC Middle College Application in the Office of Transition Programs.

Once the completed application has been submitted, the prospective student can advance to Step 3.

STEP 3: An appointment will be scheduled for each prospective student to participate in an interview with the Middle College Admissions Committee.

These interviews will be held beginning in September through December. Following the interview, the prospective student will be notified regarding their status. If admitted to Middle College, the student will advance to Step 4.

STEP 4: Middle College Orientation.

 All admitted students (and key members of their family/support group) will attend an orientation. At the orientation, information will be provided regarding the following:
