Regional Centers

Lake Superior State University (LSSU) offers baccalaureate-completion programs at our Regional Centers that build on your education from your community college. This approach allows you to complete your degree at a reasonable cost. Degrees require 124 to 128 credits of courses that are numbered at the 100 or higher level at LSSU. To obtain the baccalaureate degree from LSSU, at least 32 credits and 50 percent of all 300 and 400 level courses required in the major must be earned from LSSU. Minors require at least 6 credits of LSSU courses.

LSSU has a Bachelor of Science Degree requirement and a student must earn at least eight (8) semester credits in addition to courses used for general education requirements from categories of computer science, mathematics, natural science, or social sciences. These bachelor of science degree requirements can be used for majors or minors, but not general education. This requirement is not met by the MACRAO stamp.

All degrees require completion of general education. For students transferring from a community college who have the “MACRAO stamp” on their transcripts, the general education requirements are considered met by LSSU. Generally, MACRAO certification requires six credits of English, eight credits of social science, eight credits of humanities and eight credits of natural science and mathematics.

Degrees in Business Administration and Criminal Justice require the completion of the Common Professional Component: foundations courses that can be completed at the community college and from LSSU.

We are proud of the high-quality instruction we provide and of the personal attention that has always been a hallmark of the LSSU experience. Our small class size, experienced faculty and the ability to pursue your educational dreams close to home are what the LSSU regional centers are all about. We are here for you - our students.

Stop by our office for assistance in planning your educational goals. We can help answer your academic questions in areas of admissions requirements, scholarship/financial aid, counseling, course selection and registration for classes. Contact information is listed with each center.
