Lower Cost Models for Independent Colleges Consortium
Pursue an affordable dual degree at UND.
The Lower Cost Models for Independent Colleges Consortium (LCMC) is a consortium of small colleges and universities that has partnered with the University of North Dakota to provide students with an opportunity to earn dual degrees.
LCMC Partner Schools
Students attend on-campus courses at the partnered institution to earn their four-year degree while simultaneously taking courses online from the University of North Dakota to earn one of the offered engineering degrees. Through LCMC, students can complete two degrees in four or five years by sharing their credits between the two institutions. All programs except Electrical Engineering require an on-campus residency over the summer to complete hands-on labs in UND’s state of the art facilities. More information on these labs can be found here.
To begin the LCMC partnership program, work with your academic advisor at your home institution. When you are ready to start taking courses, UND academic advisors will help you make the journey seamless.
Students attending an LCMC Partner School should select "Rize-Dual Degree". Applicants are required to submit official transcripts and they should request ACT, SAT, CLEP, and/or AP test scores be sent to UND.
