Admissions Office

Takena Hall 115, 541-917-4811,

LBCC maintains an “open door” admission policy, meaning that anyone who is at least 18 years old is eligible to enroll in classes regardless of educational background. You may complete an online application, student data form, or registration request form and register for the desired class at any time during Open Registration. Before you can receive a certificate or degree, you must become admitted, by completing the admission process.

Students Seeking Degrees or Certificates:

If you’re working toward a degree or certificate, intend to register for 6 or more credits, or have applied for financial aid, you must complete the admission process. As a fully admitted student, you will be eligible for Priority Registration as either a full-time or part-time student and be considered for federal financial aid, if you applied. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. For all programs, the college reserves the right to give higher priority to district residents.

Students Not Seeking Degrees or Certificates:

If you want to take classes but are not seeking a degree or certificate, you don’t need to be admitted. You can simply register for your classes any time during open registration. First-time students must submit an online application, student data form, or registration request form to begin. Forms are available online or at registration service counters. (Note: Some courses require all or part of the College Placement Test (CPT) or prerequisite courses before registration is allowed.)

Whether you choose to be admitted or you simply want to enroll in a class or two, it is a good idea to meet with an academic advisor. For advising assistance, visit the Advising Center.
