College Promise

Long Beach City College’s nationally recognized partnership with Long Beach Unified School District, California State University, Long Beach and the City of Long Beach provides seamless education, preschool through college, to our community students. Half a million dollars are awarded through the Long Beach City College Foundation each year to fully fund tuition at LBCC for our local students.
