Reconnect to Complete
The Reconnect to Complete program at Lake Tahoe Community College supports adult learners who have taken some classes and earned some college credits, but who have no degree. Many times, people in this circumstance are also burdened with student loan debt and no degree to show for it. Approximately 4 million Californians are in this position, including about 6,000 adult residents in South Lake Tahoe.
If you've taken a lot of college classes in the past, it's possible that you left school with enough credits earned for an Associate of Arts degree - you just didn't know it. Or perhaps you left college needing only a class or three to get that degree.
Find out what credits you've already earned, what classes you need to take to get your degree, and how to do that affordably and efficiently. Maybe even for free!
Step 1: Update or complete your LTCC application using the 24/7 online portal, CCCApply.
Step 2: Make an appointment with an LTCC counselor to identify how many classes away from a degree you are. Then together, you'll create a plan to obtain it. Counselors are available online via Cranium Cafe, or call (530) 541-4660 x 211 to make a counseling appointment.
Step 3: Make sure you submit either a current FAFSA or California Dream Act Application to ensure you receive all of the federal and state financial aid you're entitled to. Also ensure that your student registration is up to date. Connect with our friendly staff online via Cranium Cafe to get help with these!
Step 4: Use the Passport portal site to register for your classes.
Step 5. Talk with your Reconnect to Complete program specialist, Toni Wesley, to get connected with all kinds of free student services on campus. To help with that, fill out this quick Google Doc form so we can ensure you're connected to everything you're eligible for.
