MIDDLETOWN and WARRENTON, Va. – Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) is currently holding in-person and Web registration for the spring 2009 semester, now through Dec. 10 and from Dec. 15 through 23. The College will be closed for the holidays from Nov. 26 through 30 and Dec. 24 through Jan. 4. Spring classes begin on Jan. 10, 2009.
In addition to traditional classes, LFCC is offering two innovative, convenient scheduling options for students. Students may enroll in a first and/or second eight-week session, allowing for expanded scheduling opportunities. A second choice affords students the opportunity to take up to a full load of select classes by attending only on Fridays and Saturdays.
Individuals interested in attending LFCC must first complete and submit a free application for admission to the College. For faster service, an online application is available at https://lfcc.edu/apply. Once the application has been submitted, prospective students should print a copy as confirmation of their acceptance to LFCC. It is important that students record their student identification (ID) number. This number is the key to their student records.
Prospective students may also complete a paper application, which is available in the Admissions and Records Office at either the Fauquier or Middletown Campuses or at the front desk at the Luray-Page County Center. A paper application requires several days for processing. Afterward, students will receive a letter of admission and their student ID number in the mail.
Before new students can register for classes, they must attend a new student orientation session. Students must reserve a spot and attend the entire session in order to register for classes. Walk-ins will not be permitted. Space is limited for each session, so students should reserve a spot as soon as possible by visiting https://lfcc.edu/future-students/admissions-registration/step-by-step/new-student-orientation-registration/index.html.
New students who do not attend a new student orientation session will not be permitted to register for classes. Dates for the orientation sessions follow:
- Monday, Dec. 15 from 5 to 9 p.m.
- Tuesday, Jan. 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
- Friday, Dec. 5 from noon to 4 p.m.
- Wednesday, Dec. 17 from 5 to 9 p.m.
- Tuesday, Jan. 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
