The Common Course of Study

The Lafayette Common Course of Study (CCS) was revised by the faculty in 2012 to create an all-inclusive core. The CCS establishes an outcome-based, all-inclusive academic core that will evolve and change as we review how well we are accomplishing what we aspire to teach our students.

Voter Registration Information

Voting is not only your right; it’s your responsibility. The National Voter Registration Act strives to make it possible for every member of the Lafayette community to register right on our campus, where they work and study. This gives us a chance to dramatically increase the number of voters in our college communities.
