The transfer partnership program between Lansing Community College and Historically Black Colleges and Universities was first established in 1988 with the Atlanta University Complex (Spelman College, Morehouse University, Clark-Atlanta University and Morris Brown College). ln line with the college mission, the LCC/AUC/HBCU Transfer Program has developed "learning and enrichment opportunities to improve each student’s quality of life and standard of living."
The LCC/AUC/HBCU Partnership prepares students for a four-year institution through a monitored credit transfer program. Eligible students will participate in a comprehensive program that will facilitate transfer of credits from LCC to one of our AUC/HBCU partners.
Each student will be monitored and will receive motivational and academic support throughout the program. The LCC/AUC/HBCU Transfer Program will provide students with an opportunity to experience college life while living at home, as well as time for personal and academic growth before attending a four-year institution.
