Lehigh County Community College was officially established and empowered on March 31, 1966. Sponsorship of the community college totals 13 school districts including the nine Lehigh County school districts and four of the five Carbon County school districts. LCCC has established several off-campus sites. In August 1987 the college opened its downtown Allentown site in the Sovereign Building on Hamilton Mall. The city site was relocated in January 1999 and, in November of that year, was rededicated as the Donley Center. The Airport Site, adjacent to Lehigh Valley International Airport, and the Carbon Center in Nesquehoning were also established to make LCCC classes even more convenient and accessible. Beginning August 2003, the college extended its offerings to the Morgan Center in Tamaqua. The new Technology Center on the Schnecksville campus opened in conjunction with the start of the spring semester on Jan. 19, 2004. The 50,000-square-foot building houses numerous classrooms and laboratories for the college's Industrial Technology, Computer Information Systems, and Digital Media & the Arts programs. The college is authorized to award the Associate in Arts Degree, the Associate in Science Degree, the Associate in Applied Science Degree, certificates, and diplomas in specialized career areas. Lehigh Carbon Community College is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The college is approved as an institution of higher education by the Department of Education of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
