The college does however, reserve the right to limit applications and class enrollments of students according to the policy of LACCD’s governing board, administrative direction and departmental procedures.

The pre-requisite requirement must be cleared prior to course registration. There are no exceptions to this policy.

The following information is relevant for all parents and/or guardians of any Los Angeles Mission College student regardless of the student’s age, including Dual Enrollment students who are concurrently enrolled in a high school. Your student has officially enrolled in an institution of higher education, and as a result, your student is now protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974.

When a student reaches the age of 18 or begins attending a post-secondary institution, regardless of age, FERPA rights are transferred from the parent/guardian to the student. Students must act on their own behalf. Parents, guardians, relatives, or friends of students are not permitted to enroll, drop, or add classes on behalf of the student. The same applies to requesting transcripts or grade verifications.

Under Section 49061 of the Education Code, parents/guardians of community college students do not have a right to access their children's student records, regardless of whether the student is under the age of 18. In accordance with this regulation, student college records will be released to parents/guardians only with the written consent of the student.

I am a parent/guardian and I need help logging in to, navigating, and/or processing transactions in the student portal. What do I do?
College officials may only assist the student with access to his/her student portal, which contains records covered under FERPA. Additionally, students at LAMC are expected to act on their own behalf. Parents, guardians, relatives, or friends of LAMC students are not permitted to enroll, drop, or add classes on behalf of the student.

Your student is enrolled in a college course and it is important to understand that instructors prefer to work directly with students, as opposed to the type of parent/guardian interactions you are accustomed to at the high school level. Under FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) instructors are not required to discuss student performance or other student-related issues with parents/guardians. Faculty establish a syllabus for each course, which include the course content or objectives, assignments, a general guide to the pacing of the course and information about how grades will be determined. Once a student receives the syllabus for the course from the instructor and the student decides to remain enrolled in the course, the syllabus becomes the contract between the student and teacher.

Under FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) instructors are not required to discuss student performance or other student-related issues with parents/guardians, including progress or grades.
