Steps for Returning Students
Are you returning to LMC after an absence of at least two semesters? Are you pursuing a certificate or degree, or planning to transfer to a 4-year institution? If so, get started here!
Here's how to get started
1. Apply to LMC.
Submit an application for admission. To learn more, watch the "How To" video
2. Take the Online New Student Orientation, if needed
Strongly recommended for students who have not attended LMC for 3 years or longer. The online orientation will provide you with important information
about college programs, services, policies, procedures, and requirements. Start the online orientation, if appropriate
3. Take your English and math assessment
tests, if needed
Strongly Recommended for students who not been enrolled in college for 3 years or more and have not completed college-level English and math courses. If you have taken assessment tests at another California community college in the past 3 years, mail your scores to the Assessment Center or bring them to the Information Center. Sign up for assessment testing, if necessary, or see "Alternatives to Taking the Assessment Tests".
You may not need to take the assessment tests...
- If you have taken English or math at your previous college, submit your transcript to the Admissions Office.
- If you took assessment tests at your previous college, mail your scores to the Assessment Center or bring them to the Information Center, Room CC3-817.

The Assessment Center is located
in room CC2-256. Assessment is by appointment only.
4. Create an educational plan
- Attend a New Student Workshop or see a counselor when you first return to LMC to make an educational plan.
- Post your educational plan on the Student Planning site on InSite; see Instructions. You will be able to register for classes directly from your online educational plan.
- If you are transferring from another college, request an official transcript of your grades, and submit it to the Admissions Office for evaluation at least two weeks before your counseling appointment.
5. Register for classes and pay fees.

the Financial Aid Office to find out whether you are eligible a
fee waiver. You may also be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant or
