In 1963, the Ohio government authorized the creation of Lorain County Community College in Elyria, Ohio. In 1964, the college absorbed the Lorain School of Technology and offered classes for the first time. Over one thousand students enrolled in Lorain County Community College's first autumn session. The college grew quickly. In 2005, the institution averaged more than nine thousand students per academic term. An additional four thousand students took courses for no credit through Lorain County Community College's continuing studies program. The students could choose from more than thirty Associate Degree programs.
