International Student Program

The International Student Counselor is available to meet with current F1/M1 student visa students attending LBCC to discuss your academic, career and personal goals. 

How To Schedule An Appointment with your International Student Counselor:

Current LBCC (F1/M1 Visa) International Students may schedule a counseling appointment by calling the International Student Office at 562-938-4745 (A-1097) or 
the Counseling office at 562-938-4560 (Building A-1111, Liberal Arts Campus only). You must request to see your international student counselor (Judy Oh). 

All students must have an LBCC student ID # in order to make a Counseling Appointment.

What to Bring to the Appointment:

At the time of your appointment, you must check in at the Counseling Department with your Viking student ID. Please bring your curriculum guide, ABC GE guide and list of questions for your counselor. As you start your education at LBCC, it is a good idea to keep ALL of your paperwork in a folder. At the time of the appointment, simply bring the folder with all of your documents.

How To Prepare for an Appointment:

If you have attended other colleges and/or universities prior to attending LBCC, you must submit official (unopened) transcripts to the Admissions and Records Office at least two weeks prior to your appointment time. Having your transcripts will assist the counselor to properly select your courses.

Writing out all the questions you have prior to the appointment will assist you and the counselor in making sure that all of your concerns/questions are addressed at the time of the appointment.

Why Make an Appointment?

It is very important for you to meet with the international student counselor to develop an educational plan. In order to keep up with the changing requirements, you must meet with a counselor on a regular basis. We recommend meeting with a counselor at least once each semester to develop/update an educational plan to meet your academic and career goals.

Online Counseling is now available! 

You can meet with your International Student Counselor Online.  You will need to select JUDY OH when scheduling an appointment ONLINE.  The Counseling Department also offers Online Chat for general academic questions. 

"No Show" policy: If you miss two counseling appointments within 6 months without cancelling at least two hours prior to your scheduled appointment (Note: You are also considered a no show if you check in more than 10 minutes past your scheduled appointment time) you cannot make another individual appointment until you are cleared. In order to be CLEARED, you will need to speak to a counselor during a 10-minute express counseling time (No educational plan will be developed).


If you have specific questions regarding your I-20, employment or other specialized immigration questions, please contact the International Student Office at 562-938-4745.
