The progress and stability of Lake Tahoe Community College are rooted in an institutional commitment to student success and constant efforts to realize opportunities related to the region’s unique geography and history. LTCC currently offers 21 associate in arts degrees, 13 transfer degrees (AA-T and AS-T), 32 certificates, and 21 short-term departmental certificates. Students planning to transfer to a four-year university have a wide variety of options, as LTCC offers the equivalent of the first two years of a four-year university program. In addition to the quality programs for traditional students, LTCC has expanded its career and technical education offerings and innovative summer programs. The Intensive Spanish Summer Institute (ISSI) draws approximately 500 students from across the United States for a one-week immersion experience in Spanish language and culture. LTCC’s regionally accredited Fire Academy prepares students for Firefighter I certification in California.
LTCC, a single-college district, is widely recognized as the hub of culture and education for the surrounding community and is working toward its vision of becoming “California’s premier destination community college.”
As an open-door institution, LTCC strives to minimize the barriers to college participation for those within and outside of its service area. Ensuring access to higher education is central to the core mission of LTCC:
Lake Tahoe Community College serves our local, regional, and global communities by promoting comprehensive learning, success, and life-changing opportunities. Through quality instruction and student support, our personalized approach to teaching and learning empowers students to achieve their educational and personal goals.
Thanks to our community, LTCC has an opportunity to revitalize the campus. A $55 million General Obligation Bond (Measure F) was passed in November 2014. The bond is supporting LTCC renovation and modernization (classrooms, laboratories, and technology), leveraging state capital outlay and scheduled maintenance funding. In addition, the community support of the bond inspired a generous donation from a longtime Tahoe resident, providing for the construction of the Lisa and Robert Maloff University Center. With this exciting new University Center, access to upper-division level educational opportunities and academic support services are made possible through partnerships with other institutions. LTCC is currently in talks with several regional colleges and universities toward the objective of providing collaborative baccalaureate and graduate programs, providing a local gateway to a four-year degree.
