Lake-Sumter State College extends fall semester application deadline

There’s now more time to get started on your future with Lake-Sumter State College. In response to strong demand, LSSC is extending the fall semester application deadline to Thursday, Aug. 13.

Students are increasingly choosing LSSC for its quality education that rivals the state universities offered at half the price of those schools, according to a news release from the college.

Fall semester classes begin on Monday, Aug. 24 and nearly 85 percent of fall courses will be offered through remote learning. The remaining courses will be offered in a hybrid online/on-campus model allowing for online instruction and labs and other practical experiences to be offered on campus. A limited number of courses in programs requiring hands-on training, such as electric utility lineworker, will be offered fully on campus.

LSSC staff remain available on campus and virtually to support students with enrollment, financial aid, course registration, and any other questions. Visit for hours of operation, addresses, and contact information.

In addition to in-person service hours two-days-a-week, LSSC Welcome Navigators will be available daily to assist with general questions and assist students on the Leesburg and South Lake Campuses.
