Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) is currently holding in-person and online registration for the fall 2010 semester, now through Aug. 20. Fall classes begin on Aug. 23, 2010.
Individuals interested in attending LFCC must first complete and submit a free application for admission to the College. The 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 also important that students record their student identification (ID) number. This number is the key to access their student records. Students will receive a follow-up letter confirming admission to the College.
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.
Before new students can register for classes, they must attend a new student orientation session. Due to the nature of the orientation process, students must reserve a spot and attend the entire session in order to register for classes. Dates and times for the orientation sessions are available on the LFCC Web site at http://www.lfcc.edu. Click on “New Student Orientation” on the home page to register for a session. Walk-ins will not be permitted. Space is limited for each session, so students should reserve a spot as soon as possible.
New students who do not attend a new student orientation session will not be permitted to register for classes.
Luray-Page County Center
Students attending the Luray-Page County Center should contact the staff directly at 540-843-0722 for a registration appointment.
The printed schedule of classes is available at LFCC’s Fauquier and Middletown Campuses and the Luray-Page County Center as well as online at http://www.lfcc.edu/current-students/my-lfcc/class-schedule.
Tuition for the fall 2010 semester for Virginia residents is $101 per credit hour, which reflects a $2 per credit hour reduction associated with ARRA stimulus dollars for 2010-11. Tuition for out-of-state residents is $279.60 per credit hour. Out-of-state students enrolled in online courses receive a discounted rate of $185 per credit hour. These tuition rates do not include applicable fees.
