The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) reminds all high school students and their parents that the annual Black College Expo will be at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa Street, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, February 1.
This is the 21st year that the expo will be in town. The LACCD is partnering with the Los Angeles Urban League, https://www.laul.org/, to have information tables and representatives for the District and its nine colleges at the event.
“We want all African American students and families to know that the nine colleges of the Los Angeles Community College District are an excellent first choice for higher education in Los Angeles,” LACCD Chancellor Francisco C. Rodriguez, Ph.D., said.
“We have tuition-free education for two years and outstanding learning facilities with unique educational opportunities and student success services available to all first-time, full-time students though our Los Angeles College Promise program. Priority registration is available to students who enroll by May 1 for the Fall 2020 semester.”
The expo is a day-long learning opportunity open to all with workshops and info booths about financial aid; representatives from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to talk about transfers for existing college students; internships and scholarships; and special educational programs in science, engineering and math.
