demonstrating leadership potential in the advanced skills needed to perform at higher‐level leadership and staff positions. LSEC benefits the Army by providing the soldier specific leadership training which will enhance performance of the soldier and the unit. Commanders can schedule training to meet unit needs or enroll the soldier in an open scheduled class.
LSEC is an on‐duty program and attendance in all classes is mandatory. Soldiers not attending all classes risk the possibility of failing the course for non‐attendance.
These courses provide Soldiers the opportunity to complete an Associate Degree in General Studies or an Associate Degree in Arts or Science. The LSEC program is open to the “Total Army Family” for Active Duty Soldiers. Family members, Retirees, DoD Civilians and members of the USAR and the Army National Guard are all welcome participants. The following list contains the classes that are currently approved for credit and offered in the LSEC program. Most of these courses transfer to the four‐year Regents schools in Kansas and can contribute to the completion of a four‐year degree. These courses are required for most first and second year college students, e.g., English Composition I, Speech, College Algebra, etc. Through the LSEC program a student can earn a full Associates Degree in General Studies at no charge. Books are also provided for use during the class at no charge to the student. Family members may also enroll in English as a Second Language courses.
