Student ID Card

Admissions, Takena Hall - 115, Monday – Friday

You will need an LBCC student photo identification card to use many of LBCC’s services, including the Library, the Business Office, Assessment Center, Learning Center and Bookstore. A student ID card allows you free rides on public transportation and entitles you to discounts on certain merchandise or services in the community. You must be a registered student in order to obtain an ID card for a one time non-refundable $10 fee, or by payment of the "first term fee" for admitted students.


Academic advisors assist students in developing an education plan which takes into account the student’s career goals and major. Students are expected to meet with their advisor each term and whenever they have questions. Students play an important role in forming a productive relationship with their academic advisor and are expected to schedule appointments ahead of time and come prepared to the appointment. Newly admitted students are assigned a specific advisor, based on their declared major. Students who have not yet decided on a specific major are assigned an advisor for career exploration​ and career development and life planning. Students with an assigned advisor will find the name of their advisor in their WebRunner account, once the first term begins. Students who need help identifying their advisor may inquire at the Advising Center, Takena Hall.

Student Assessment Office/Placement Testing

RCH-111, 541-917-4781,

Before registering, all newly admitted full-time students are required to take the Computerized Placement Test (CPT) to determine appropriate class placement or request to have the exam waived based on prior completion of appropriate college courses. Part-time students who are registering for math or writing classes also must take the CPT or request to have it waived. High school students who earned a score of a 3 or 4 on their Smarter Balanced exams in writing and math have the opportunity to use those scores for placement. Appointments are made online for the CPT at or through the New Student Center entry process. Contact the Center for Accessibility Resources to arrange test accommodations. The Student Assessment Office also offers a variety of other tests for students and community members. They include:

  • General Education Development (GED®) test for the certificate of high school equivalency
  • College Level Exam Program (CLEP) test for college credit by examination
  • Course challenges that enable students to earn college credit by examination without completing regular credit coursework
  • Proctored exams
  • LBCC course make-up tests
  • Authorized Pearson VUE Test Center

Student Success Options in Mathematics

LBCC has designed the following courses to refresh skills prior to taking a course or perhaps accelerate students to the appropriate transfer-level mathematics course. Students should check with their academic advisor when making a decision about an appropriate mathematics pathway.

SS1.127 Math Boot Camp is a one-week, one-credit course that runs prior to the start of each term aimed at giving students time to refresh math skills for an upcoming course or to work on improving math placement. Math Boot Camp is designed for students who have been placed into MTH 050, MTH 075, or MTH 095 and is designed to be an intense review of past knowledge, not a time to learn new material. Students will be guided by a mathematics instructor using online software to work through the review of skills and concepts.

MTH 015 Math Fast Track is a 10-week, five-credit course for students who have perhaps been out of school a while and forgotten some math skills. Students in Math Fast Track work at a faster pace than in other courses, with the goal of increasing their math placement by more than one class in a single term. To be successful in Math Fast Track, a student must be motivated and must have ample time outside of class dedicated to working on the material. Students and their instructor will determine a timeline for completing work. Math Fast Track is taught using online software to relearn forgotten math skills.

MTH 098 Foundations for Contemporary Math is a 10-week, five-credit course that is an alternate path to MTH 105, a transfer-level mathematics course. For students pursuing a degree whose mathematics requirement can be satisfied by MTH 105, this pathway (MTH 098) will prepare you for success in MTH 105 in just one term. Students on this pathway take MTH 098 instead of the traditional algebra sequence. This course, therefore, is only for those students who do not need MTH 111, or any class for which MTH 111 is a prerequisite, in their degree plans. Students should check with their academic advisor about taking advantage of this alternate path. Please note:

  • MTH 098 is NOT for students who need to take MTH 111.
  • Students taking MTH 098 should sign up for MTH 105 for the following term.
  • MTH 098 is a 5-credit course that requires active participation from every student.
  • Excel and computer access will be needed throughout.
  • Exams will be taken outside of class in a testing center.
  • The student should have taken algebra in high school.
  • Forgotten math skills will be recovered when needed, so there is no prerequisite.
  • If the student has been out of high school algebra for several years then it is recommended that the student take MTH 050 before taking MTH 098.

Advising Center – Counseling Services

Takena Hall 101, 541-917-4780,

The primary goals of Counseling Services are to provide opportunities for students to clarify and attain their educational and career goals and to promote student well-being equitably for all students. Counselors teach classes, such as Destination Graduation for special populations (undecided students and international students, for example) and Human Development classes, such as career planning which help students explore self and correlate self to potential careers. Counselors also serve as academic advisors.

Advising Center – Career and Student Employment Services

Takena Hall 101, 541-917-4780,

The primary goal of Career and Employment Services is to teach and support students in the processes of preparing for and obtaining a career position that improves quality of life upon college graduation/completion. Career and Academics Support Specialists offer a range of student experiences designed to help students prepare for workplace success, including career assessments, career exploration, experiences to develop workplace and employability skills, and job search techniques.

Students may participate in workshops to build their job-seeker toolbox.

Center for Accessibility Resources

Red Cedar Hall, RCH-105, Voice: 541-917-4789,

The Center for Accessibility Resources (CFAR) plans accommodations for LBCC students and event guests who are eligible for services. CFAR staff members offer accommodation related information, planning and advocacy. A variety of services (i.e., test accommodations, including college placement tests, sign language interpreting, assistive technology, accessible formats, note taking, etc.) are customized, based on medical/educational documentation or information that supports the disability that is provided by the student. LBCC does not test or diagnose disabilities. The Center for Accessibility Resources offers a distraction-reduced testing space and provides assistive technology and software designed to support students with disabilities.

If you seek accommodations, complete the CFAR online application form and submit copies of your medical/educational documentation or information that supports the disability. Information about applying for accommodations can be found at Initial documentation and contact with CFAR is the student’s responsibility. 

For information on any disability-related matter, contact CFAR at 541-917-4789 or email Telephone Service for Hearing and Speech Impaired Students and staff may use the Oregon Telecommunication Relay Service (OTRS) at 1-800-735-2900.
