Lethbridge College’s faculty and staff members are ready to welcome students back to campus this fall, and to make the process even easier and more affordable, the college has cut the application fee in half during the month of April.
“We have been marvelling at students of all ages who have shown great resilience as they’ve navigated a year of uncertainty and change,” says Dr. Paula Burns, Lethbridge College President and CEO. “We hope this savings in the application fee might make it easier to take that first step to a post-secondary education, whether students are interested in coming for a semester, a certificate, a diploma or a degree.”
The savings will be automatically applied to any student who applies between April 1 and 30 online, reducing the usual $100 application processing fee to $50. The savings cannot be applied to students who have already applied.
College officials announced in March that, after successfully balancing the need for health and safety for the entire college community by offering both online, high-flex and in-person classes for students this current year, they would work to safely welcome students back to campus for most classes this fall.
“We know how much our students value the on-campus experience, and we can’t wait to introduce them to the activities and events that make college life so meaningful,” says Dr. Samantha Lenci, Lethbridge College Provost and Vice President – Academic. “From Kodiaks games to work-integrated learning experiences, we’re ready to make some amazing memories with these future students.”
Specific details about which classes will be offered on-campus will be finalized in the coming months, but it is expected that every program, except for the traditionally online-only classes, will have an on-campus presence this fall. Lethbridge College will continue to monitor public health guidelines and work with Alberta Health Services to ensure all proper guidelines are in place.
