Federal Student Aid is not available to students for these pilot courses. However, Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College is offering limited scholarships to cover the cost of tuition and fees for students who meet admission requirements to enroll in any of the pilot courses.
“Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College is very excited to offer two first-ever Master’s degrees in Management and Human Services. Recently, the Higher Learning Commission approved LCOOC to offer two first-ever Bachelor’s degrees in Business and Human Services. The degrees are being offered as a result of overwhelming community requests, identified needs of tribal community leadership, and as an important goal of our strategic plan. Our role as a college is to offer programs and services that help our Ojibwe tribes meet their goals. According to President Russell Swagger these programs will be helpful in meeting tribal community needs in economic development and social services.”
LCOOC is currently seeking accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to offer fully accredited master’s degree programs. These pilot courses, along with submission of the necessary application materials were submitted Summer 2021, as part of the accreditation process.
