General Description:

LFCC offers over 70 different programs of study including degree and certificate programs. The College awards Associate degrees after two years of academic study. Students may choose the transfer (Associate in Arts and Science) degree program that allows them to enter a four-year college or university after their sophomore year or a technical (Associate in Applied Sciences) degree program that will provide marketable skills in two years or less. Or, if students want to be qualified for today's competitive job market, but do not want to invest two years to earn a degree, our Career Studies Certificate programs can be completed in one year or less. And LFCC is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. That means courses taken at Lord Fairfax will transfer into a bachelor's degree program at most other accredited colleges and universities throughout the country.

Programs Description:

Counseling, advising, and academic support, including “reasonable accommodations,” are arranged for students who bring appropriate documentation of a disability and are prepared to self-advocate. Special needs served under the 504/ADA Program range from specific learning disabilities to severe mobility impairments, and emotional disorders.
