Lake Region State College
Elementary Education, Early Childhood and
University Studies may be completed on
the Lake Region State College campus via
various delivery methods.
Early Entry -
North Dakota House Bill
number 1273 allows high school students
who have obtained sophomore, junior and
senior status to receive high school credit
for the college courses they complete.
Generally, a student who enrolls in a college
course will earn three college credits and
one-half high school unit for successfully
completing the course. These courses
may be offered on campus, off campus
or online. The dual credit program is
coordinated through the Center for Distance
Education and Outreach Services. LRSC
requires at least a 3.5 high school GPA for
sophomores and 3.0 high school GPA for
juniors and seniors for enrollment in dual
credit courses. Students must also meet
the Student Placement into College Courses
requirements.
Extended-Degree Programs -
The college became involved with the
Interactive Video Network (IVN) in 1990.
Since that time, the college has established
four fully-dedicated video conference
classrooms.
IVN uses video conferencing technology
to combine multiple locations into a single
classroom environment. Of all distance
education technologies, this technology
most closely replicates traditional classroom
instruction. In 2001, the ND Legislature
approved legislation to provide video
conferencing capabilities in all high
schools in North Dakota. Therefore, the
IVN Network has expanded to include
these entities, the new network is called
STAGEnet.
Grand Forks Air Force Base -
Lake
Region State College has a site at the Grand
Forks Air Force Base, which offers courses
and programs at Grand Forks Air Force Base,
Fargo Air National Guard, Cavalier Air Force
Station and Thule Air Force Base. Students
must meet the same standards and program
requirements as on-campus students.
The American Association of Community
Colleges identifies Lake Region State College
as a Service Member’s Opportunity College
(SOC) providing educational assistance to
active duty servicemen. A SOC institution
offers the following benefits for service
members:
Use of admissions procedures that
insure access to higher education
for academically qualified military
personnel.
Evaluation of learning gained through
military experiences and academic
credit awarded where applicable to the
service member’s program of study.
Evaluation of non-traditional learning
and awarding of academic credit for
such learning where applicable to the
service member’s program of study.
Institutional transfer of credits and
acceptance of such credits whenever
they are appropriate to the service
member’s program and are consistent
with the college’s curriculum.
Flexibility to service members in
satisfying residence requirements
by making adjustments for military
students who transfer when there are
other assurances of program balance.
Designation of personnel with
appropriate academic qualifications and
experience to administer and supervise
SOC related activities and to develop
policies and procedures appropriate to
the scope of their voluntary education
programs.
Educational services for veterans.
The college is also a charter member of
the Service Member’s Opportunity College
Associate Degree Program (SOCAD)
Network. The Network was established by
the American Association of State Colleges
