Academic Services
Helping students succeed is our number one
priority. Lake Region State College provides
educational outreach and life-long learning
opportunities that encourage 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 an advisor who serves as a
guide in the student’s progress. LRSC
encourages continuing communication
between advisor and student 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.
Counseling Office -
The Counseling
Office provides a setting in which students
may explore academic, career, technical
and personal concerns in confidence.
Professional assistance is offered in
areas of adjustment to college life, self
esteem, interpersonal relationships, goal
setting, decision making, career selection,
study skills and test anxiety. Referrals
to appropriate community agencies are
arranged when necessary. The Counseling
Office is responsible for directing student
academic advisement on campus and
works directly with transfer students who
