Committed to our students
At FLC, we are committed to creating a welcoming, supportive and respectful environment for all of our students, staff and faculty. This is no less true for students who have immigrated here, with or without documentation. We continue to comply fully with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), protecting the privacy of our students, including information about immigration and citizenship status, upholding fair practices in admission and housing, and facilitating access to resources for students and employees. See our official commitment for detailed information.
At Fort Lewis College, we recognize that navigating the college application process is more complicated for students who lack residency status in the US. To assist these students, we have provided a list of resources to guide you on your journey into the halls of higher education at FLC. If you have specific questions, or need assistance en español, please call the El Centro Coordinator, Shirena Trujillo Long, directly at 970-247-7290, or by email. Shirena is available between August 1 and May 15. During the summer, please contact the Admission Office directly at 970-247-7055 for assistance.
