For many people, summer is the time to resume, begin or advance in their academic career. For students looking forward to making the most out of their summer, the upcoming accelerated semester sessions will be beneficial in helping them finish their degrees at a faster pace and graduate earlier.
Our institution has adapted and evolved, and now we are back with more online, more hybrid and more in-person instruction options. Laredo College offers many associate degree programs, one-year degree programs and an array of certifications for high-demand careers. Academic courses at LC are transferrable to public state universities in Texas.

LC’s technical programs offer the instruction to develop necessary skills in various fields to prepare those who are seeking academic growth to enter the workforce or become future entrepreneurs. Some of the high-demand programs offered are business management, electrical technology, welding, logistics, culinary arts, automotive and diesel mechanics, cosmetology, computer technology and many more.
Our institution also offers award-winning health sciences programs that prepare the future healthcare professionals of our region. Students enrolled in the health sciences programs graduate ready to serve their community however, they can also choose to continue their education and complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing. LC nursing students graduate with the honor of having attended a college with one of the #1 Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Programs in the nation.
Furthermore, LC also offers a cutting-edge cybersecurity technology program that serves as an effective tool to prepare students to enter this exciting and continuously evolving field.
