College START

Students with learning differences (LD), including ADHD, autism, executive function challenges, or a learning disability such as dyslexia, often struggle with traditional online learning. LC Online is different. Students with LD succeed. Why? Our online courses are based on approaches we have used for many years on campus and in our unique online offerings. College START is for students who need key resources and support with academics and social skills, but in an online setting, as they transition to, or even return to, college.

College START students benefit from:

  • Dedicated, individualized advising and unparalleled support from faculty and staff who understand learning challenges and help students with LD develop lasting learning strategies.
  • Complete access to all campus resources including library, Information Technology, and intentional programming that promotes connection with residential LC students.
  • Social programming delivered through our Office of Student Affairs, the Center for Neurodiversity, the Centers for Diversity & Inclusion, and specialized programming to keep students engaged and to help them build lasting friendships.
  • Unique course designs that foster student success by reducing the barriers that are often common in traditional online learning programs.

Whatever path a College START student chooses, they will leave the program with:

  • Improved time management and organizational skills
  • Insight into their personal learning styles and how to make changes that lead to academic success
  • Better skills needed to collaborate, communicate, and interact naturally and effectively in an academic, professional, or social environment
  • The foundation and confidence needed for future success
