The University Writing Center (located in the library) is an interdisciplinary student resource that offers free, individualized help from trained student consultants to discuss any of the following: deciding on a topic; clarifying and organizing ideas; outlining, drafting and revising; improving grammar and punctuation; citing sources accurately.

Counseling Center Page

The LCU Counseling Center provides professional, confidential services for a variety of personal, relational, and academic concerns. Students seeking individual counseling are entitled to an intake or consultation free of charge. After the initial session, each subsequent session will be $10 each, but students are also invited to participate in support groups, campus programs, and other opportunities for personal growth.

The Counseling Center is staffed by caring individuals who have the student’s best interest in mind. The counselors are licensed professionals, or master’s level graduate students working under the supervision of the Director. Our counselors can help with issues related to stress and anxiety; relationships and breakups; emergent crises; grief; recovery from abuse; academic concerns; family problems; depression; alcohol and drugs, as well as other  matters related to our students’ mental health.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a Federal law that protects the rights of students by defining who has access to student educational records. Now that your student is in college, FERPA laws transfer ownership of the educational records directly to the student; therefore, parents have no inherent rights to view, change, or control the student’s educational records.

In general, unless your student gives you access to her/his academic and/or financial records, we will not be able to share any related information with you. Academic records include registration, schedule, and grades. The student financial account is a detailed record of all costs of attendance, miscellaneous charges, and related financial assistance. Students and those who have granted access will be able to view and pay student financial account information online through the LCU Student Account Center.

Parents who want access to college student account information including most recent statement, financial assistance, and/or grades will need to gain access through their student’s LCU Self Serve Account. In addition, students may also sign a release form with the Registrar’s office allowing parents access to financial and non-directory educational record information.

1.  Authorized Payer:
