Get Started



The Admissions & Records office is the first stop for new students, acting as a gateway to their educational future. Our goal is to help you during your time at LBCC and assist you in registering for classes and preparing for your first semester.



Matriculation is a process that enhances student access to the California Community Colleges and promotes and sustains the efforts of all students to be successful in their educational endeavors. The goals of the Matriculation Office are to ensure that all students complete their college courses, persist to the next academic term and achieve their educational objectives through the assistance of the student-direct core services, which include orientation, assessment for placement, counseling, educational planning, and student follow-up services for at-risk students.
