Founded in 1967, Lakeland Community College was the first college in Ohio created by a vote of the people. True to our mission, Lakeland provides quality learning opportunities to meet the social and economic needs of the community.
Offering day, evening, weekend and online classes, Lakeland Community College serves more than 13,000 credit and 7,000 noncredit students annually. Lakeland offers more than 150 associate degree and technical certificate programs leading to high demand careers or transfer to four-year institutions. Tuition remains one of the lowest in the state of Ohio. Lakeland's Holden University Center was established in 2011 to provide further opportunity for those with higher educational goals. The Holden University Center offers bachelor's and graduate degrees from a variety of four-year partner institutions.
