NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION AND ENROLLMENT

As a new student, you are required to complete a New Student Orientation and have a counselor create a Student Educational Plan (SEP) based on the major you selected at the time of applying to LAVC.  This personalized SEP will include all the required prerequisite, major, general education and elective courses tailored to your academic and career goal(s).  The majors are grouped under Career-Academic Pathways (CAPs).  Within each CAP, you can explore a set of program maps that show a semester by semester path from program entry to completion. 

Completing the requirements below will help you enroll in your first semester courses and make you eligible for enrollment priority for future semesters.  This will allow you to enroll early in all classes before they become full.  

ENROLL IN YOUR FIRST SEMESTER CLASSES

  • ​Based on your major, click on the CAP icon below to see the suggested courses for your first semester. 
  • Determine If you are able to attend full-time (12 or more units) or part-time (less than 12 units). For example, if you work full-time (35-40 hours per week), consider enrolling in less than 12 units.   
  • Enroll in your classes based on the enrollment date that has been assigned to you.
ARTS, MEDIA AND DESIGN HEALTH AND PUBLIC SERVICES HUMANITIES AND COMMUNICATION MANUFACTURING, ELECTRONICS AND CONSTRUCTION STEM SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES

REQUEST A STUDENT EDUCATIONAL PLAN (SEP)

Based on your major and CAP, click on the SEP Request link below to complete and submit the form.  Please allow at least two weeks for a counselor to complete your Student Educational Plan (SEP). 

Please Note:  DO NOT COMPLETE THE SEP REQUEST FORM if you have transcripts from other colleges/universities, Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and/or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) scores.  Request your official transcripts to be sent to the LAVC Admissions and Records Office.  Schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor two weeks after you have requested your transcripts to complete your Student Educational Plan (SEP).
