As area students come back home from four-year universities to pick up summer jobs and reunite with family, Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) remains a great option for continued course work. LFCC offers many summer classes, which can be utilized as transfer credits when students return to their normal routines in the fall. Taking classes in the summer can certainly lessen the load during fall and spring semesters, when full-time course loads can prove daunting.
LFCC offers over 40 transfer agreements with four-year colleges and universities. George Mason, Virginia Tech, James Madison, University of Virginia, Old Dominion, and Shenandoah are just a few institutions from that grouping.
The 2015 summer semester begins on May 26th and classes will be offered in ten, eight, and five week sessions. Course selections may be on campus, on-line, or a hybrid format of both. LFCC has four convenient locations in Middletown, Vint Hill, Warrenton, and Luray.
Founded in 1970, Lord Fairfax Community College is a multi-campus public institution of higher education. With four locations — Middletown, Warrenton, Luray-Page County and most recently, Vint Hill— the College serves eight localities in the Shenandoah Valley and northern Piedmont regions. The localities are the counties of Clarke, Fauquier, Frederick, Page, Rappahannock, Shenandoah and Warren and the city of Winchester. LFCC offers more than 75 associate degree and certificate programs in a wide variety of disciplines, in addition to providing access to bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs offered on site by a four-year institution. LFCC also serves the business community by offering workforce preparation programs for employees and employers. LFCC serves more than 9,000 unduplicated credit students and more than 11,000 individuals in professional development and business and industry courses annually.
