COVID-19 updates for NEW STUDENTS

LCC ADMISSIONS OFFICE continues to work with you remotely

While the university has moved to remote instruction and limited campus operations for the time being, we continue to serve our prospective students and families remotely. Contact us any time at study@lcc.lt or by phone Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. LT time or continue working with your admissions counselor.

Campus Events Update

On March 14th, after the Lithuanian government announced quarantine, LCC has moved all of their classes to an online format.  While many of our students have decided to return to their home countries, 185 non-Lithuanians stayed in Lithuania. In fact, both Enns and Neumann residence halls are still buzzing with 140 students who decided to stay on campus until the end of the semester. For information and updates related to the virus and our university’s response, please see www.lcc.lt/coronavirus.

While we are planning that all our summer programs and regular work will resume from June 1, we are still carefully monitoring the situation in the country. We will continue to adapt our plans as necessary notifying all audiences that we work with.

LCC will also start the 2020/2021 academic year as planned with the new Student Orientation happening on August 27-29 and classes beginning on August 31. We have various plans developed on how to adjust if face-to-face classes aren‘t possible and all students will be informed of that ahead of time.

Application Deadlines

LCC admission process and the deadlines have not been affected. We continue working with new student applications and the final deadline is June 30. We encourage everyone to apply early as that will guarantee you have your admission decision sooner. It takes up to 2 weeks to get your admission decision. Early application also ensures that you have enough time to apply for scholarships or need based aid.

Once you receive your admission offer, you will have time until June 15 (non-EU students) /  July 15 (EU students) to make your decision and pay the deposit of 300 EUR. Full refunds will be possible before August 1.

Required English language testing

Since testing conditions are now complicated, we understand that students have limited options to move forward with their applications. Therefore, for the summer of 2020 DUOLINGO is recommended as a temporary test of English proficiency for LCC admission instead of TOEFL or IELTS. The minimum pass score is 65.

Regarding Final Transcripts and Grades

For students who are still finishing school this year, we ask you to submit final grades of your last two years and the grades of this year’s first semester. If you have a hard time getting transcripts from school, please write to us at study@lcc.lt and we will find a solution. All new freshmen intending to enroll in the fall will need to have satisfied their high school’s graduation requirements. We will also be careful to follow the updates and adjust based on when countries will be issuing high school diplomas.

Transfer Admission

All students applying for transfer must submit their application just as regular applicants before June 30. We understand that due to school closures and impacts of COVID-19, students may have difficulty providing additional required documents. Please consult with your admissions counselor to make individual arrangements. If admitted to the university, official documents will still be required in order to finalize admission. This will include the final college/university transcripts from the most recent semester attended. All official documents must be received in our office by August 1, or before you attend Student Orientation.
