LCC announces NextUP — a new program for foster and ward of the court students

Lassen College is excited to announce the launch of a brand-new special program, NextUP.

This program is specifically for LCC’s current and former foster youth and ward of the court students to help navigate the path to higher education.

Whether the goal is to transfer to a four-year university or to transition into the workforce, LCC is here for them.

LCC can offer a variety of services such as assistance with books, supplies, transportation, food and housing. Additionally, LCC can offer one-on-one assistance to ensure that the student is on the correct path with their education and navigating the admissions process.

The only requirements are to have been in care on or after one’s 13th birthday, be younger than 26, and are enrolled in nine units or plan to enroll in nine units.

Contact Susie Rentfrow at or call (530) 257-6181, ext. 8955 to discuss your eligibility.
