LONG BEACH – Long Beach City College (LBCC) announced new schedules for its summer session. The full list of courses is available online at lbcc.edu/schedule. Regular summer classes will begin on Monday, June 16. Registration opens in late April and will continue until the start of classes.
LBCC’s regular summer session offers 402 classes to choose from with classes ranging in duration from four to eight weeks online and at LBCC’s two campus locations. A list of important dates, scholarship information, financial aid and counseling details can be found in the Summer 2014 Schedule of Classes available for viewing online by clicking on the PDF formatted link.
“We are excited to welcome new and returning students to our campus and to offer them a robust class schedule this year,” said Eloy Ortiz Oakley, President of Long Beach City College. “After years of reduced summer sessions, it is wonderful to provide a wide range of courses again to our students whether they have just completed high school or are in the final stages of achieving their academic goals here at LBCC or at another college.”
Those who are considering attending summer classes, but have not yet applied, are encouraged to complete an online application as soon as possible by visiting www.lbcc.edu/onlineapplication. State supported class fees remain at $46 per unit for resident students and $190 for non-resident students. A wide range of financial aid and other assistance is available.
Long Beach City College will also offer five Summer Extension courses through the Community College Intersession Extension Act, which allows eligible colleges to provide high demand courses during intersessions over and above those classes supported with state funds. The program is expected to help veteran and other students make progress toward their goals year round.
Summer Extension classes begin June 23 and end on August 14; priority registration begins in mid-May and continues until classes start.
Extension courses do not qualify for state support and the Board of Governors Fee Waiver does not apply. However, Board of Governor Fee Waiver eligible students will pay a significantly reduced fee of $90 per unit, compared to resident student cost of $225 per unit and the non-resident rate of $265 per unit.
Students who opt to enroll in the Extension courses can utilize a variety of financial aid programs including unused Pell Grant funds, GI benefits and the American Opportunity Tax Credit program. Information about financial aid options are available online at www.lbcc.edu/financialaid or from Financial Aid Offices located at the Liberal Arts and Pacific Coast Campuses.
