Lakeland Community College is waiving its $15 application fee for those who apply for admission and wish to take classes in the spring semester. Spring registration is now open and classes begin Jan. 16, 2021.
"With so much uncertainty right now, we want the community to know that they can count on us," said Dr. Morris Beverage Jr., Lakeland president. "Lakeland has provided college access in Lake County and the surrounding areas for more than 50 years. In times like these, you can be certain that we'll continue to provide high-quality, educational opportunities in high demand fields."
With many having budgets squeezed, future students are encouraged to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to be eligible for help with money for college. Lakeland may be added as a college of choice on the FAFSA form with the school's code 006804. Many Lakeland scholarships are awarded using the information on a student's FAFSA.
Military veterans are especially encouraged to contact the veteran's office for information about applying GI education benefits. They can get help with questions about filling out, and completing, Veterans Affairs forms and receive assistance with advance registration each semester.
General information about applying, financial aid and degree and certificate programs is available on Lakeland's website.
