New official transcript request process; LLCC no longer processes requests

Effective immediately, LLCC will no longer process official transcripts.  To better serve our students, LLCC has partnered with Parchment for the production of our official transcripts.  Using Parchment enables our students to order their LLCC transcript from anywhere at any time. Students can order transcripts from Parchment three ways:

  • LLCC website:  Direct students to go to our webpage and type “transcript” in the search box.  They will be redirected to a page explaining the process and providing a link to Parchment.
  • WebAdvisor:  WebAdvisor provides a quick link to our Parchment site in the “Students” section under Academic Profile.
  • Parchment website:  Students and former students can visit Parchment.com.  In the box that asks “What school did you attend?” they should type “Lincoln Land Community College”.  This will direct them to our site within Parchment.

LLCC staff can still provide students with unofficial transcripts.  Unofficial transcripts are processed for students in person at any LLCC location or through WebAdvisor.  Students requesting in person must have a photo ID.  Transcripts requests (whether official or unofficial) will no longer be accepted by email, fax, or phone.

LLCC-Taylorville celebrates college’s 50th anniversary

LLCC-Taylorville celebrated the 50th anniversary of the college yesterday with a ceremony in which Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry presented a city proclamation to LLCC President Charlotte Warren. Dr. Warren then assisted Alderman Earl Walters in unwrapping a new street sign, “Lincoln Land Way,” to mark the renaming of the former Lee Norse Drive on the north side of LLCC-Taylorville. The new sign will be posted soon. The ceremony took place just prior to a meeting of the LLCC-Taylorville Community Partnership Group, formerly called the Advisory Council. The original LLCC-Taylorville celebration, scheduled for April 29, was cancelled due to stormy weather.

Congratulations, Kevin Lust!

Kevin Lust, director, Illinois Small Business Development Center at LLCC, was chosen as the Sangamon CEO 2017 Person of the Year. Kevin received the honor, voted on by class members, at their graduation breakfast May 19.

The ISBDC at LLCC hosted Sangamon CEO March 22 for talks by three local entrepreneurs who were assisted by ISBDC, and May 4 for an address by Governor Bruce Rauner.

Sangamon CEO is a group of high school seniors who meet prior to the regular school day at various businesses and organizations to learn how to become entrepreneurs and creative thinkers who contribute to the economic development, innovation and sustainability of Sangamon County.

LLCC receives grant for sustainable ag training program for disadvantaged youth

Teens from the local Boys and Girls Clubs will be on campus Monday afternoons June 19-July 24 learning about sustainable agriculture and entrepreneurship, helping with the college farm stand, working in the high tunnels, and meeting with campus administrators to learn more about LLCC.

The “Sustainable Agriculture Youth Workforce Development Program” is made possible through a  $2,000 grant from the North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE) Program.

Project coordinator Marnie Record, workforce specialist, says the grant will be used for a hands-on sustainable agriculture training program for low-income, disadvantaged community youth in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Central Illinois. Participants will be introduced to all aspects of gardening from soil to harvest. The students will be given entrepreneurial experience through the management of a farm stand. In addition, in order to develop leaders and future employees, the students will learn life skills such as problem solving, working in a team, communication and time management.

The farm stand will be open on Monday afternoons in A. Lincoln Commons.

Since 1988, the SARE program has helped advance farming systems that are profitable, environmentally sound and good for communities through a nationwide research and education grants program. The program, part of USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture, funds projects and conducts outreach designed to improve agricultural systems.
