ON-LINE CALENDAR (1999-2001)


Applicants enrolled in high school at the time of application may receive a tentative acceptance if the courses in which they are currently enroled enable them to satisfy admission requirements. Applicants are responsible for providing official final transcripts which confirm that the required course work has been successfully completed.

  • The blended grade is required for Alberta high school courses which have a diploma exam.

Alberta Ministry of Learning (formerly Alberta Education) transcripts should be submitted for High School courses completed in Alberta. Contact the department to make arrangements to have your transcripts electronically sent to LCC.

Applicants to Lethbridge Community College should be aware that the High School Equivalency Diploma (GED) may be of limited usefulness for gaining admission to career programs. An Applicant who has a GED will be considered for Alternate Admission (see below).

Individuals who do not have the formal admission requirements as stated in this Calendar can apply as Alternate Admission Applicants. Alternate Admission Applicants are required to submit an Application for Admission and pay the non-refundable $40.00 (one-time) application processing fee.
Official documents that verify academic history must be provided. Admission tests as well as a personal interview may be required to provide basis for acceptance as an Alternate Admission Applicant. Acceptance as an Alternate Admission Applicant is not automatic.

Individuals wishing to register in LCC credit courses without making a commitment to a specific program will be required to apply as an Occasional Student. They will be required to complete an Application for Admission and submit it to the Registrar’s Office along with the $40.00 (one-time) non refundable application processing fee, prior to registration in credit courses. For admission as an Occasional Student, no other documentation (transcripts etc.) is required.

Occasional Students may enrol in a maximum of four credit courses as an Occasional Student, any further registration as a Occasional Student will require the permission of the Registrar.
Occasional Students may also apply for admission to a specific program through the regular Application for Admission process. Attendance as an Occasional Student does not guarantee acceptance into a program.


Applications to attend various intakes of apprenticeship programming are made directly to the institution the apprentice wishes to attend. Applicants must first be registered with Alberta Advanced Education and Career Development, Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch. Applicants to apprenticeship programs should apply to the College at least 12 weeks prior to their expected start date.

Please contact the LCC Admission Office (403) 329-7234 or toll free 1-800 572-0103 for further information on Apprenticeship training at LCC.

Applicants who seek admission to LCC on the basis of work completed in other countries must satisfy the College that their qualifications are comparable to those of Canadian Applicants. International Student Applicants are required to submit:

  • A completed Application for Admission and $40.00 (in Canadian funds) non refundable, one-time application processing fee.
  • Official Transcripts of all secondary and post-secondary level course work must accompany the Application for Admission. Original documents or certified copies bearing original seal(s) and/or signature(s) must be supplied. (Except Apprenticeship and ESL Applicants).

All Applicants whose first language is other than English must demonstrate that they are proficient in the English language by writing and achieving a minimum score of 500 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or through testing in the LCC Assessment Centre.

Registration forms for the TOEFL are available through:

Educational Testing Service,
Box 899, Princeton, New Jersey,
U.S.A. 08541.

Students without a minimum TOEFL score of 500, must achieve satisfactory results on tests administered by the LCC Assessment Centre. Applicants with TOEFL scores less than 500 are encouraged to apply for LCC’s English as a Second Language (ESL) program. STUDENTS APPLYING DIRECTLY TO ESL ARE NOT REQUIRED TO SUBMIT EDUCATIONAL DOCUMENTS.

Students returning to complete their program after an absence of one term or more must apply for re-admission to the program. For students completing a program through distributed learning, this time period is extended to one year. Information is available through the Admissions Office in Student Services. Returning students graduate under the calendar covering their year of readmission.
Admission of returning students will be considered after current students have pre-registered.
