Laredo Community College is located in the southern Texas City of Laredo, situated due west of Corpus Christi and straddling the border of Mexico.
Laredo Community College offers a very affordable annual tuition rate, with state residents paying barely over $2000 per year, and costing out of state scholars not much more a year at about $3000.
This may explain why LCC currently serves the education needs of over 10000 students. Approximately 6000 of these co-eds are part time students, with the remaining one-third or so registered for full course loads.
Fortunately, LCC students are not stuck in overly crowded classrooms or competing to meet with their teachers for additional instruction, thanks to the more than 500 faculty members currently teaching at Laredo Community College.
Prospective students interested in Laredo Community College will find a vast and diverse number of academic programs sure to meet their needs, with majors including (but not limited to) banking and financial support services, international marketing, computer and information systems, drafting and design technology, heating/air conditioning/ventilation and refrigeration technology, occupational therapist assistant, auto body/collision and repair technology, computer installation and repair technology, and fire protection and safety technology.
Students at Laredo Community College have access to a school library, post graduate job placement services, and a number of varsity sport programs for both men and women.
