What is Encore!?
With fewer adults over the age of fifty interested in traditional retirement than ever before, this group represents a large and growing population for new areas of education focused on career, self enrichment and community. LCC's enrichment program serving this population focuses on these three categories of the Encore! population. In addition, college-wide efforts to welcome this population are critical to their ability to participate in traditional college activities.

New courses are developed on a monthly basis and courses that are accelerated, unique and that meet the needs of students and customers are welcomed.
How do students sign up for CCE courses?
