2020 Best Online Community College Illinois. Guide to Online SchoolsLLCC has been named a top school for online learning by the Guide to Online Schools in its recently published “2020 Best Online Community College Rankings by State.”

Each community college was ranked by factors including retention rate, graduation rate, percentage of online enrollment data and the number of online associate degrees offered.

An announcement of the rankings states, “Many students are considering the benefits and safety of online degrees. Online community colleges offer an affordable option for students who want to begin their education path at home. Additionally, this choice can eliminate the financial strain … an important consideration as students face an uncertain economy.”

LLCC is expanding the number of online courses this fall, says Becky Parton, dean of academic innovation and eLearning. “We’re offering hundreds of general education transfer courses online, as well as many career-focused courses. Our faculty receive intensive training in online teaching. With a low student-to-faculty ratio, our online students receive personal attention in their classes.”

LLCC was among the pioneers in online education. For 23 years, LLCC has provided affordable, high quality courses online and maintains the highest level of accreditation for online teaching from the Higher Learning Commission.

Registration for fall classes is now underway at LLCC. More information on online courses is available at
