Student Right-To-Know and Campus


Security Act
The Long Beach Community College District is
committed to making the campuses of Long Beach City
College as safe as possible for students, employees, and
visitors. The Long Beach Police Department-College
Unit exists to inform, educate and make individuals
aware of personal safety, as well as the safety of others.
Students are encouraged to promptly and accurately
report all criminal and emergency actions to the Long
Beach Police Department College Unit on either
campus. Those actions requiring further reporting
should also be reported to the appropriate law
enforcement agency. Assistance will be provided, as
needed, to accomplish this task.
Policies exist identifying Long Beach City College as a
secure facility. Access to all facilities outside of class
hours requires prior approval from the Office of
Administrative Services.
Under the auspices of the Long Beach Police
Department College Unit, monthly crime reports are
compiled and distributed for both student and employee
consumption. These reports are intended to inform
individuals about current criminal experience, as well as
educate individuals regarding crime prevention. The
Police Department also recommends and conducts
programs designed to inform students and employees
about campus security procedures and practices which
encourage individuals to be responsible for their own
security, as well as the security of others. In addition,
pamphlets are prepared and distributed by the Long
Beach Police Department College Unit on a regular
basis to new students and employees regarding campus
safety and crime prevention.

NONCREDIT CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION


The NONCREDIT CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION is based on hours of instruction rather than on credit. The
Noncredit Certificate of Completion was created in response to Senate Bill 361 (SB 361), which encourages
California Community Colleges to offer certificates leading to improved employability or job opportunities.

Courses leading to a Noncredit Certificate of Completion are in the area of Career Development or College
Preparation and must be part of one of the following: (1) a short-term vocational program with high employment
potential; (2) a sequence of courses in (A) elementary or secondary basic skills including sequences of courses
leading to a high school diploma; (B) workforce preparation in the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading, writing,
mathematics, decision-making, and problem-solving skills that are necessary to participate in job-specific technical
training; or (C) English as a Second Language (ESL) or Vocational English as a Second Language (VESL).

occur after the printing of this catalog.

To Be Arranged (TBA) Courses


This course may be scheduled using the “To Be
Arranged” (TBA) scheduling format. This allows for
specific lecture and/or lab instructional activities to be
delivered through more flexible scheduling of days and
times but for a specified number of hours and in
accordance with the requirements and specific
instructional activities of the course outline of record.
This will be expected of all enrolled students. Please

Student Alert: Understanding Transfer


Course Descriptions
The phrase at the bottom of the course descriptions
offered under "Courses of Instruction" must be read
with care. Students should be aware of this key phrase,
Transferable to CSU/UC, see a counselor for
limitations. A course can transfer to the CSU or UC
system as an elective part of a major and/or as general
education credit. Since general education courses can
be certified by LBCC when completed, students should
consult pages 34-39 to see if the course is on the
appropriate general education pattern. If the course is
not found on the general education pattern, the course
may be counted as part of the major or as an elective by
the institution receiving the transfer student. It is the
student's responsibility to select courses that meet
his/her educational goals. The best advice for
interpreting this phrase, therefore, is to see a counselor.

Experimental Courses
The descriptor “Experimental” applies college-wide
and is issued as a curricular placeholder identified by a
standard number (98, 298 or 898) and by the general
heading Experimental. These courses provide an
opportunity for curriculum experimentation and
innovation.
While the Experimental course option offers a
department curricular opportunities, it also has some
limitations, particularly for students.
Credits are degree applicable (98, 298) as elective
credits only.
Credits are transferable (98) as elective credits only.
Experimental courses cannot be placed on a program’s
curriculum guide.
