High School Students

High School Students Page

Congratulations on your decision to enroll at Los Angeles City College while you complete high school! High school students over the age of 13 can apply to attend LACC; however, a Supplemental Application for Admission of Students in Grades K-12 is also required. AB 540 students must apply in person in the Admissions Office, SS-1F.

High School students must re-apply every semester and are limited to 11 units per semester (7 units in winter session). If you are unclear of a course that your counselor has approved we will be glad to assist you in the General Counseling Center (SS-1F).
SAT scores are not a requirement for enrollment to Los Angeles City College. These scores are used for students who will transfer directly to four-year universities upon high school graduation.

Step 1: Apply to LACC
You can get an application to attend LACC on campus at the Student Assistance Center. This application must be submitted with the required Supplemental Application for Admission of Students in Grades K-12 at the Admissions Office in the Administration Building, Room SS-1F. Please be sure to bring picture ID. For additional information or questions, please call the Admissions Office (323) 953-4000 ext. 2104.
(NOTE: The College Enrollment Information section must be completed by a school official)

Step 2: Take Your Math and English Placement Tests

With the exception of passing AP scores for English and Math that can be used for course credit, you must take an assessment test at LACC if your high school counselor has recommended either of these courses. Your assessment score will determine the course level of English and/or Math that you can enroll in. You may make an appointment for your assessment online or in person at the Assessment/Matriculation Office (SS-2F).
*Assessment tests can be taken only after you have applied to the college and are issued a student ID number. 

Step 3: Counseling Appointment

See a a counselor in advance of registration. Make sure you are selecting the correct classes to reach your academic goals; whether it be a degree, certificate, university transfer or other professional/personal goal. You can schedule a counseling appointment online or in person at the Assessment/Matriculation Office (SS-2F).

Step 4: Get Registered!

You will receive an appointment date and time to register for your classes (by e-mail or in person at the Admissions Office). Counselors can help you select classes before you enroll. On or after that counseling appointment, you can go to the Student Information System to enroll online. Enroll early since classes fill up quickly!
To receive high school credit for classes taken at LACC, fill out a transcript request form upon completion of class(es) so that it can officially be sent to your school.
