During the monthly Long Beach Community College District Board of Trustees meeting held on Nov. 13, college officials announced that LBCC will expand its tuition-free education to two years to all qualified Long Beach Unified School District students starting fall of 2019. The funding for the second year will be provided by the Long Beach City College Foundation.
Long Beach City College has been named a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE2Y) by the National Security Agency (NSA). LBCC is only the third California Community College to receive this designation.
The NSA reviewed LBCC’s cybersecurity program last spring and determined that LBCC is providing rigorous instruction with the most current cybersecurity industry trends to students.
Long Beach City College Child Development Centers (CDC) and Learning Labs received high praise from the Quality Start Los Angeles. Both the Liberal Arts and Pacific Coast Campus CDCs were ranked a very high level of four out of five tiers.
“We are so proud of our Center managers and teaching teams for their ongoing dedication and professionalism,” said Gene Carbonaro, who oversees the CDCs as the Dean of the School of Career Technical Education. “It was amazing to have a professional organization come out to validate the great work we do here every day.”
“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.”

No application necessary – every local student’s enrollment fees will be automatically covered.
