Lake Region State College

Academic Services

Helping students succeed is our number one

priority. Lake Region State College provides

educational outreach and life-long learning

opportunities that encourage our students to

reach beyond their limitations.

New Student Orientation -

The

orientation process begins when students

are invited to participate in the New Student

Registration Day. ACT test scores, the results

of alternative testing, and high school

grades are used by advisors in a personal

session to help prepare a plan of study

consistent with each student’s individual

needs, interests and abilities.

New students are also required to

attend an orientation program provided

the weekend before classes begin.

Advisement -

Lake Region State

College is committed to providing all

students with a series of advisement

services that begin as soon as they are

accepted and continue through to the

time of job placement or transfer to

another institution.

Each degree-seeking student is

assigned a faculty advisor who serves as

a guide in the student’s progress. LRSC

encourages continuing communication

between faculty and students to

enhance the advisement process.

The student has final responsibility to

meet the stated requirements for the

degree sought as listed in the catalog or

supplemental fact sheet.

Registration -

Registration is the

student’s personal responsibility.

Students are encouraged to utilize

additional advisement resources

including academic and career

counseling, a comprehensive career and

transfer library, and/or a computerized

guidance system.
