Each student is assigned an academic advisor with whom they are required to meet before registering for classes each semester. While the advisor is a resource, it is the student's responsibility to make sure they are getting the classes they need. If you have further questions, please contact the registrar's office at 717.560.8258.

Each undergrad student is given a curriculum sheet to guide their course selection throughout their four years. An academic hold is placed on a student's class registration and is lifted once the student's class selection is approved by the advisor each semester. Ultimately though, it is the student's responsibility to ensure they are meeting graduation requirements.

LBC equips Christian men and women with the biblical foundation for ministry whether it is in a church, a business, a school, or any other area. Many students choose to work at a faith-based institution, but the general education requirements ensure that students are prepared for any type of job. A student's academic advisor can provide more information about specific job opportunities relevant to the student's major.
New students can pre-register for fall classes during the summer. Current students in good academic standing are registered at the end of each semester for the following semester's classes.
We understand that having your student is living in a dorm or apartment is not the same as having them in their own bed at home. LBC takes active protective measures to ensure the safety of all our students. For example, curfew is 1 am each night. Dorms are secured by a fob system which locks automatically at curfew, so no one can enter the building.
We also have a campus security force on call 24/7. They can be reached at 717.560.8247 or by cell at 717.314.3145.
Classrooms, common areas and some dormitories are handicapped-accessible, and accommodations are made for students with disabilities. Please contact the Disability Services Office at 717.569.7071 ext. 5383 with any specific questions or concerns.
