Lehigh Carbon Community College (also referred to as LCCC) is a two-year community college located in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, in the Lehigh Valley region of the state. The school serves as the primary granter of associate degrees in the Allentown area.

LCCC was founded on March 31, 1966[1] as Lehigh County Community College, and it originally held classes in the former Lehigh County Courthouse. In 1972, modern facilities were constructed, which laid the foundation for its current campus. In order to increase enrollment from nearby Carbon County, the school decided on its current name in 1994.

The college also has learning centers in several off-campus locations, including at the Donley Center in Downtown Allentown, the Carbon Center in Nesquehoning (Carbon County), and at the John Morgan Center in Tamaqua, Schuylkill County.
