Eligibility to play at Lake Tahoe Community College

LTCC is a California Community College.  A student-athlete can participate in a maximum of 2 years of a collegiate sport at the community college level.  After that, the student-athlete can transfer to participate in that sport at a 4-year college/university for his/her junior and/or senior year.  

If you have already competed 1 year at another college, you will have 1 year of remaining eligibility at the community college level.  If you have already competed 2 or more years at another college, you are not eligibile to participate in athletics at a community college.  

You are NOT eligible if you have competed as a professional at that sport.  

You must be enrolled and attending 12 units during the season.  To be eligible to play a second season, you must have completed 36 quarter units and have at least a 2.0 GPA since the first season. 

Transfer students

If you are currently participating at another California Community College, you must take 12 units at LTCC before you can start participating with LTCC Athletics.  If you are in-season with another California Community College, please wait to contact us until after the season has ended.  This residency requirement does not apply to non California Community Colleges.

Unfortunately, there is currently no on-campus housing.  The college is currently exploring the feasibility of dorms for the future, but it is not yet an option.  Please visit the college's housing page to find resources on finding a place to live in South Lake Tahoe.  

Another option is to contact current student-athletes in your sport to see if there are going to be any openings in their house/apartment for the upcoming year.  You may be able to connect to current student-athletes by finding the Facebook page for that specific sport for LTCC.  

Financial Aid

You may qualify for federal financial assistance if you are a U.S. citizen.  Please checkout information on the college's Financial Aid page.  There are also fee waivers (if you are eligible) and general scholarships that you can apply for.  

As part of the California Community College Athletic Association, LTCC is not permitted to give athletic scholarships.
