Interviewing

Every new student must complete an intake interview with one of our Student Support Specialists (S3). This informal interview helps to determine the new student’s needs and the services we can connect them to.

Testing

  • Prospective students must take reading and math placement tests as part of the enrollment process. If you are returning to LAYCCA, your results must be within the last 3 months prior to the beginning of the session.
