Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

2.83 Average Rating
I'm saving thousands of dollars by completing all my general education requirements here and with financial aid and scholarships available I would say that Bang for the buck might not be enough to describe LBCC.
Vanessa from Long Beach, CA
LBCC helps its students succeed by lowering prices for things like books and parking. Parking passes never surpass $25, and there are also some free spaces available near campus as well. EOP&S is a program that will help pay for your books, and other expenses you may have that Financial Aid will not cover. You will also have access to state of the art classrooms and computers that the school has recently purchased. Long Beach City College is continuously growing and building new things that students will love. You may be paying for Community College, but besides a dorm, you'll feel like you're at a university.
Sean-Michael from Artesia, CA
I am truly blessed that I am even able to do, to learn, to think at the college level. I have always prided myself on being a strong minded individual, and knew that there was a bigger plan than I could have orchestrated. It is my intention to take full advantage of the years I have left, learning, experiencing and sharing the time and knowledge God has given me.
Braham from Long Beach, CA
Every class and instructor usually require you little material and they don't go ask you to buy these highly expensive books. I actually save a lot of money because the books are not that expensive. The parking, food, and ect is also cheap as well.
