Meet the Admissions Team

The Office of Student Affairs 

The Office of Student Affairs serves and guides students at LECOM from matriculation through graduation. Each step of the way, caring and dedicated staff are committed to assisting students, contributing to their success and enhancing the LECOM experience.

Recruitment and Admissions personnel assist prospective students in the selection of LECOM as their first choice for professional education and guide candidates through the process of identifying requirements for admission, submitting an application, interviewing and completing matriculation requirements for successful applicants.

Financial aid staff advise and assist matriculating and current students in securing the funds necessary for tuition, fees and living expenses through loans and scholarship opportunities.

The Registrar’s Office maintains each student’s academic records, verifies enrollment as needed, provides official transcripts and prepares diplomas for graduating students.

Additional services within Student Affairs include career counseling, assistance and information related to securing medical residencies, coordination of student clubs and organizations and their activities, monitoring compliance with various institutional policies such as immunization and insurance requirements, and planning and implementation of special events such as Commencement and White Coat ceremonies.

We welcome you, to LECOM.
