Does LBC offer a reduced tuition rate for active military personnel?

The ceiling for DoD TA is $250 per credit hour. Must submit a copy of most recent LES (Leave and Earnings Statement) to the Financial Aid Office.

What if I am at sea with limited online connectivity?

Our online courses are asynchronous – you don't have to be online with other students and/or your professor at a specific time. Typically, your professor will post assignments or discussion questions that are due by the end of the week. Most of your coursework is offline, so you will require relatively little online time to download information and post assignments or discussion responses. Our professors understand the unpredictable nature of your military service and will work with you to help create a schedule for completing assignments around changes due to last-minute military needs.

Do I have to come to LBC's campus for any part of my education?

There is no requirement to come to our campus to earn a degree from our college. You have the option of attending one of our graduation ceremonies, but if you can't make graduation, we'll send you your diploma and all other items you would have received at the graduation ceremony.
