COVID-19 Update: Before You Drop, Counseling Appts. Next Week, Mental Health


Dear LBCC Students,

This is your COVID-19 LBCC update for Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

Let Us Help Catch You Before You Drop

It’s true that online classes can be a difficult adjustment, especially when it wasn’t expected. But LBCC wants to remind you that we are here to help. If you are thinking about dropping a class, please consider that doing so can affect your entire educational plan. So, before you drop consider utilizing these options first:

  • Contact your Instructor for their suggestions.
  • Use our online tutoring services. You can email the Writing & Reading Center at and put “tutoring” in the subject line. The Math Success Center is hosting online tutoring and will begin offering private online tutoring with Net-Tutor by the end of this week. Visit for a schedule of Science tutoring activities. Email to make a tutoring appointment for a science class at
  • Talk with a LBCC academic counselor.

Counseling Appointments Available During Spring Break

LBCC Counselors will be available via remote access throughout Spring Break next week. Take advantage of this time that you won’t be meeting online with your classes to work with an academic counselor online. You may also email for assistance. 

Help with Mental Stress Too

Everyone is feeling the stress of this COVID-19 situation in different ways. Long Beach City College can also try to help through our Mental Health Counseling as well as academic counseling. Learn more by calling (562) 938-3987.
