The Long Beach City College Foundation recently received a gift of real estate, which turned into one of the largest donations in the Foundation’s history. The donation was from a Long Beach couple to support the Long Beach College Promise.
Long Beach City College, through a combination of cost savings and an aggressive enrollment push, has dramatically slashed its deficit by $5.9 million.
LBCC’s 2017-2018 budget included a deficit of about $10.7 million. It is anticipated that as of July 2018, the total deficit amount will be reduced to $4.8 million.
Long Beach City College students who frequently utilize Long Beach Transit’s “Zap” line will have an alternate bus schedule this summer to travel between the College’s Pacific Coast Campus (PCC) and Liberal Arts Campus (LAC). This schedule is effective now through Aug. 19.
According to Long Beach Transit representatives, the fastest route from PCC is to take bus line 71 or 72, heading north on Orange Ave. and to transfer to bus line 101 or 103 heading East on Carson St. towards LAC (and in reverse when traveling from LAC to PCC).
Long Beach City College is accepting participants for a free Construction Apprenticeship Readiness Program aimed at training local residents for union apprenticeships or employment in the construction trades. The inaugural class will start on July 9.
“This is the first school I’ve gone to in the U.S., so being immersed in such a large diversity of people has really broadened my world perspective. LBCC has brought out a more competitively academic side of me.”
“For me, LBCC has been somewhere I was able to pursue my goals and test my abilities. Also, I love the diversity of its student body.”
“LBCC offers me a platform and an environment to succeed. From my professors to my advisor to my fellow students, I have felt welcomed, challenged, and supported.”
“The courses I’ve taken at LBCC have challenged me to dig deeper in my understanding of myself and my place in the world.”

High school graduates at participating high schools who enroll at LBCC in the fall immediately after graduation will have their first year of enrollment fees paid by the Long Beach City College Foundation. No application is necessary — every local student’s enrollment fees will be automatically covered.
