Student Services

General Services

Students have access to instructors and administrative staff for academic advisement. Students may seek assistance for housing, academic matters, or personal matters.

Student ID Cards are issued to students during the first week of each semester for new students. Students can either take the photo at the school or bring their own recent passportstandard photograph. All LAPC students must have student ID cards in order to use the school's library facilities.

A tutorial program is available to students who seek additional assistance or practical experience. A student may have tutoring from his/her instructor during regular sessions by making arrangements with the instructor.

Advising/Continuing Education

Los Angeles Pacific College encourages students to discuss any problems that interfere with their education with the Academic Director, Student Services Director, or their instructor. If there are financial problems, assistance can be secured by speaking to the Academic Director, Student Services Director, or their instructor. Assistance is also available for students intending to obtain admittance to a four-year college.

LAPC strives to provide valuable advice regarding U.S. visa and immigration procedures for international students. If we are unable to provide advice, or the topic is outside our area of expertise, students are advised to consult the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services website.

Job Placement Services

LAPC provides job placement assistance to all its graduates, though there is no guarantee or promise of employment. Graduates may take advantage of placement assistance services provided that all job placement seminars have been attended and all placement assistance guidelines have been observed. LAPC provides assistance with job applications, resume writing, job-search strategies and interviewing techniques. Graduates must be legally eligible to accept employment if they are not a U.S. citizen or resident alien. Documents attesting to this fact include a Green Card, Work Authorization, or a letter from the USCIS showing a valid "A" number.

Students requiring additional assistance have access to a placement counselor for personal guidance. LAPC is dedicated to assisting its graduates in every way possible to secure employment for them.

Housing Arrangements

LAPC does not have housing facilities for students, and bears no responsibility to find or assist the students in finding housing. However, we offer housing arrangement services for international students and non-LA residents while studying at LAPC. We assure secure, affordable and reliable arrangements including carefully selected homestays, as well as safe and convenient apartments near the school. Homestay families are carefully screened and matched with students, and orientation materials are distributed to promote a smooth and productive relationship. If there are any problems that arise, the Student Services Director will assist in finding a solution. The student is provided with an emergency contact number if any unforeseen issues arise.
