Next Steps

Welcome New Students

Congratulations, and welcome to the Lancaster Bible College family! As part of your commitment to attend LBC, you’ll want to sign up for one of our upcoming Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR) days. As a new student SOAR is an important step and provides the experience of:

  • Meeting the rest of the LBC family, including faculty, staff and current students
  • Interacting with other incoming students and their families
  • Engaging with others in your academic program as you receive your class schedule
  • Worshipping together with the LBC Community
  • Getting to know the Student Activities team
  • …and so much more!

SOAR also provides the opportunity to finalize your schedule, complete the financial aid process, and receive important information that will help you begin your journey at LBC. Keep checking back to this site for updated information as it becomes available in the months ahead!
