Simultaneous Open House Registration Fairs Together on August 7, 9 A.M.-1 P.M.


We’re back!  We’re Open!  We’re ready for You!  For the first time in the history of the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), all nine LACCD colleges are hosting simultaneous, in-person Open House Registration Fairs, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Saturday, August 7, 2021.


The Red Carpet is out for anyone interested in attending college to visit one, two or even three or more of our colleges on August 7.  Now is the perfect time to get your career or higher education goals back on track!  Free tours, free food, music and free giveaways are planned as part of the simultaneous events.  College officials, enrollment experts, financial aid counselors and faculty will be there to talk about why the LACCD “Colleges of Los Angeles” are the right choice for you.



Free COVID-19 vaccination clinics also will be available to everyone.  Any LACCD student who gets vaccinated at the Open House Registration Fairs is eligible to receive up to $150 for getting vaccinated.  Many of the colleges also will be offering additional vaccination incentives on Aug. 7.


And don’t be surprised if you bump into LACCD Chancellor Francisco C. Rodriguez, Ph.D., who plans to stop at several of the colleges throughout the day for the simultaneous Open House Registration Fairs on Aug. 7.


Each college will have personnel available to help you apply.  If you already applied and have your unique student ID number, enrollment experts will also be there to help you develop a flexible education schedule that meets your needs for the Fall 2021 Semester.



Each of the nine colleges will have a variety of on-campus, in-person classes as well as online, remote instruction and hybrid class options for the Fall 2021 Semester.  LACCD offers guaranteed admission and our special Los Angeles College Promise program (LACP) provides tuition-free education for all new, first-time, full-time students and free laptops.  We have many other financial aid opportunities too.  Read the LACP digital welcome kits in English and Spanish.


All LACCD students who get vaccinated now are eligible for $75, or $150 if they bring a friend or family member to get vaccinated too, thanks to a partnership between the Foundation for the Los Angeles Community Colleges and Kaiser Permanente.  To date, more than 550 LACCD students have already taken advantage of this valuable offer.  Students must be able to show they were vaccinated July 1, 2021, or later, and apply for the incentive using the LACCD student portal ( ) and the form under the Scholarship / Foundation link.
