LAMC Description

Established in 1975, Los Angeles Mission College is the newest member of the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD). Despite its youth, the school provides extensive educational resources to its students. With courses in nearly 65 disciplines from Engineering to Interior Design, there’s something for everyone in LAMC’s academics.

The school also provides numerous financial aid opportunities, including state and federal grants, to eligible students. The Los Angeles Mission College Foundation, which is comprised of local citizens and businesses, funds scholarships like the Endowed National Notary Scholarship, the Bernard Osher Foundation Scholarship, and the Computer Scholarship.

Due to private donations and state aid, LAMC has embarked on many significant construction projects. The Bio Lab, Child Development Center, Health & Physical Education Center, and Family & Consumer Studies Building are among the recently completed and ongoing campus improvements.

The college is also part of LACCD’s Sustainable Building Program, a $6 billion green construction project to update LA’s community colleges for maximum sustainability.

Student life at LAMC offers some of the most exciting and diverse opportunities anywhere. Los Angeles is a hub of entertainment, art, and culture, and Sylmar is just 20 miles away from the Pacific Ocean. At LAMC, you’re minutes away from the thrill of the city and the relaxing atmosphere of the coastline.
