Begin to register for an Education Planning Workshop

This workshop is designed for first-time college students at Los Medanos College- whether you are a graduating high school student, starting college for the first time or in a long time as an adult learner, or transferring from another college.  Developing your Education Plan with a Counselor helps you to stay on track to graduate and not take unneeded courses.  You will be allowed to ask specific questions and receive personalized recommendations from a Counselor.  The Education Planning Workshops will be offered in a small-group format based on LMC's Learning, Major & Career Pathways:
