About Lower Columbia College

Attending Lower Columbia College saves time and money for new and continuing students. Whether your goal is to enter the workforce or transfer to a university, there are a variety of program offerings. From middle school to master's degree, Lower Columbia College maintains focus on providing a college educated workforce. You are encouraged to explore available options.

Lower Columbia College offers a small-town, friendly and safe environment that encourages students to further their intellectual, social and personal development.

About 7,000 students attend each quarter. Classes are small, allowing for personal student attention.

Our campus offers classroom and lab complexes, a library, student center, fine and performing arts center, baseball stadium, gym and fitness center and a new Health & Science Building currently under construction.

Our greatest strength is our community support. We work closely with local organizations to support our community and give back in whatever way we can. We set high academic standards and love working with students from all walks of life. Small classes, dedicated teachers, and a friendly, supportive environment set the tone of our institution. LCC welcomes curiosity, creativity, intellectual ambition, and an openness to new ideas. We see learning as a challenging, deeply rewarding, and profoundly important activity to be shared in a spirit of collaboration. 



Campus information

Today's campus has expanded to include 27 buildings located on 38+ acres, with state-of-the-art technology enabled classrooms and labs designed to prepare students for in-demand careers.

Located at the intersection of 15h Avenue and Washington Way, the campus is close to local neighborhoods, downtown shops, and restaurants. Lake Sacajawea Park features walking paths, biking trails, picnic areas and special event venues.


As an alternative to living with a host family many LCC international students choose to live independently, or with roommates, in an apartment or house. There are several units available within walking distance of the campus and there is bus service available for those that choose to live a little further away. All LCC students are provided a free bus pass.

The Lower Columbia College International Programs staff will assist with finding and setting up the rental of an apartment or house but it is the responsibility of the student(s) and/or parents to pay the monthly rent. 

The average one bedroom apartment/house in the Longview/Kelso area rents for about $600-$700 a month. Depending on the lease, students may also be responsible for paying utilities, cable, and Internet separately. Renters must be 18 years of age or older. If you are a first time renter you may be required to have your parents co-sign the lease.
