Your Next Steps at LBCC

The information on this page applies to certificate- and degree-seeking applicants who are not part of the Roadrunner Advantage Program or CTE Signing Day. Contact the First Resort Center with any questions.

1) Apply to LBCC

Submit your application to LBCC. See the Academic Calendar for term start dates and application deadlines.

    • Apply as a degree-seeking student (you must apply as degree-seeking if you want to take more than five credits and/or you would like to use  financial aid)
    • You will hear from the college by email once your application has been processed. It may take up to a week to hear back.

2) Set Up Your My LB Single Sign-On (SSO) Account

My LB Single Sign-On allows you to access orientation,  registration, and more. You can set up My LB SSO as soon as you’ve been accepted to LBCC. You must set it up to complete your next steps and register.

3) Prepare for New Student Orientation

You will receive an email with details on how to access the online New Student Orientation once it is available. For fall term, New Student Orientation opens in June. For all other terms, New Student Orientation opens four to six weeks prior to the start of the term. Check the Academic Calendar for term start dates.

While you wait, there are steps you can take to get things in order:

    • Apply for Financial Aid.
    • Send official transcripts of prior college experience (if applicable) so that we can give you credit for courses you’ve already taken.
    • Examine your interests and your degree and certificate options at LBCC using Career Coach. If you’re undecided and would like to meet with a Career Specialist prior to orientation, you can reach out to The Advising Center.
      • If you're interested in some of our Applied Industrial Technology & Transportation, you may want to connect with a program representative to learn more about the expectations and needs for those programs, such as upfront costs, minimum requirements, and opportunities for sponsorship.

4) Complete New Student Orientation

When New Student Orientation has opened, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to access it in Moodle. Each step of New Student Orientation must be completed in order. Once you have access, you should complete all the steps as soon as possible as registration appointments and classes begin filling up as time goes on.
