  •  on CC Level 3 (street level): LMC Bookstore and Admissions Office
  • on CC Level 2 (one level below street level), you will find: Assessment Center, Counseling Center, Transfer Center, Welcome Center, EOPS and DSPS


We anticipate this part of our construction project to be completed by August 15, 2014, at which time a throughway from our outdoor quad to the College Complex will reopen. Thanks for your patience. We're building for your future, building for your success!

Don't Waste a Trip!

Class cancellations online

If you are new to LMC, you may not know that you can check online to see whether one of your classes has been cancelled for the day. The online Daily Class Cancellations web page provides a solution to the frustration of getting up early on a summer morning and rushing to the college, only to find out your instructor had to report for jury duty. Why not bookmark this page on your computer for daily check-ins?
