Take the ESL placement test. In order to be placed into the level of instruction that best meets your needs, you MUST take our placement test. We encourage you to take the test as soon as you know you want to take classes. Do NOT wait until the beginning of the semester, or it will be too late.
You will need your student I.D. Click here for information about the placement test, including how to schedule an appointment, and where and when to take the test.
Make an appointment to meet with our ESL counselor, Mr. Luis Morales (or an available counselor), to get help understanding your placement results, selecting ESL courses, finding out about financial aid, and creating an educational plan. You can make an appointment
by phone - call the Counseling Center (925-439-2181 ext. 3334), or
PREPARE & ATTEND
Mark your calendar for the first day of class and make note of other dates you should be aware of (Important Dates). Go to the LMC bookstore to buy your course textbooks and school supplies. Determine your transportation needs (including buying a parking permit if you are driving to school). Review a campus map and find your classrooms. Give yourself plenty of time, especially the first 2-3 weeks of classes, to find parking, locate your classroom, and avoid being late.
