LCC High School Diploma Completion Initiative

The High School Diploma Completion Initiative (HSDCI) is a unique opportunity for mid-Michigan students who have disconnected from their high school to jump-start their education and career preparation.

HSDCI is designed to provide students with the tools to be successful in a demanding society and career. HSDCI classes are LCC courses where students earn college credit concurrently while completing diploma requirements. While HSDCI courses are mainstream college courses that are part of curricula at LCC, instructional methods at HSDCI are customized to maximize the learning opportunity for high school students.

HSDCI is a small learning community that prides itself on communication and accountability. While students appreciate the autonomy that our college campus environment provides, we emphasize that they must be reliable and responsible with their class schedule and balance commitments to the program and outside of school demands. Our program adheres to the college and department policies with regard to attendance and academic performance standards. In general, students cannot exceed four absences in a 16-week class or they can be administratively dropped.

Every semester, the program staff will monitor each student's academic performance to determine if they are eligible to continue in the program. Just as the college does for its traditional students HSDCI will review to ensure that our students have:

  • A cumulative GPA of a 2.0 or better in all courses attempted at Lansing Community College.
  • A cumulative completion ratio of 70% or better of all courses attempted at Lansing Community College (withdrawals, incompletes, audits, repeated courses, and all attempted courses are reflected in this calculation).
