LCC Partnership Program

Lansing Community College (LCC) and CMU offer a teacher preparation program for individuals in the Lansing area to become certified elementary (grades PK-6) teachers. The program provides LCC students the option to take CMU courses to complete a B.S. in Elementary Education with a major in teaching grades PK-6. All LCC and CMU courses are delivered by departmental-approved faculty in the Lansing area and online. All completed courses and program requirements result in the B.S. in Education degree from CMU and a recommendation for the Michigan standard teaching certificate. CMU is working toward a 2+2 program with an online option for the future. If this is something you may be interested in please email for more information.

Meet the LCC and CMU staff who will discuss financial aid, teacher education admission requirements, and major information and required course offerings. Other topics include legal issues, diversity requirements, and the CMU/LCC website. The orientation meeting is once a year and if you have any questions please contact Casie Hansel at (517) 337-8360

Central Michigan University Students starting the LCC/CMU Elementary Education program apply to CMU's off-campus programs as well. Work with a CMU advisor to determine the best time to apply and fill out the application.
