On the JumpStart registration form, you will have the opportunity to list three class choices: your first choice of classes, your second choice and your third choice. We will make every effort to register for your first choice of classes, your second choice of classes if the first choice is full for JumpStart students or your third choice if the first two choices are full.

LBC offers the tuition-free JumpStart opportunity for one class per semester. If a student chooses to take an additional class they are required to pay the full, per-credit tuition fee.
Approximately three months prior to classes starting, JumpStart students are able to register online for the class of their choice. Registration dates for new and returning students are posted on the JumpStart homepage, as well as the class listings and a course description booklet.
Each year, we post a Registration Booklet for the fall semester online at the end of May. The Registration Booklet for the spring semester will be online at the end of November. We offer general education classes as well as introductory classes for our various majors.
JumpStart students are eligible to take only fall and spring classes.
JumpStart students can participate in classes that have online components. Part of the JumpStart experience is being in class on campus, so all available JumpStart courses include classroom instruction.
During orientation, accepted JumpStart students meet with the JumpStart staff to learn about LBC’s electronic platforms, receive their username and password, tour the campus, review important dates, receive parking information, review college procedures and receive other general information about the college.
