About LSSU

  • A degree right here

    You can finish your degree without traveling to LSSU’s main campus. The courses for a degree are offered in Escanaba, Iron Mountain, or Petoskey. Please consult with the Regional Center Director regarding any main campus class requirements.

  • When to start

    You can begin your bachelor degree if you have earned 88 credits or an associate degree. It’s recommended that you first complete an associate degree and obtain the MTA stamp (indicating your general education courses have been satisfied at the community college).

  • Completing your degree

    If you have an associate degree, you can typically earn a bachelor degree in two or three years by taking two classes per semester (including summers).

  • Classes that fit your schedule

    Our classes are offered on week nights or weekends. We also have on-line, blended (a portion meets in-seat as well as an on-line component), Interactive TV, and tape-delayed DVD classes. A typical night class meets from 6-9 p.m. for 15 weeks. The weekend classes usually meet five weekends (Fri. & Sat.) throughout the semester.

  • Faculty

    Our faculty has a master’s degree or Ph.D. in their field. Their classroom and career experience enhance program instruction. Both full-time LSSU faculty and adjunct professors provide high-quality education to our students.

  • Personal Attention

    Our staff at the LSSU Regional Centers are available to assist with educational planning, scheduling, obtaining resources and other issues. We make it easy for you to earn your degree from a Lake Superior State University regional center!
