Los Angeles Harbor College

Over 65 Years of Educational Opportunity to Our Community


Welcome to Los Angeles Harbor College, the college of choice for Harbor area residents. Harbor College is known for the superb teaching and personalized attention that we offer students. Harbor College offers a broad range of programs geared toward helping students prepare themselves for life in the 21st Century.  We are proud of our faculty and staff who care about each and every student – and our rigorous academic programs. Our students transfer to UCLA, USC, Cal State Dominguez Hills and other colleges both within and outside California.


From the moment you step on our campus, we offer a variety of programs and services to help you achieve your goals. From the Counseling Office, Transfer Center, Learning Skills Center, to the Veterans Center, Financial Aid, as well as numerous workshops, our staff will assist you in making your learning experience here a success.  We also offer numerous co-curricular student activities that will enrich your experience here at Harbor College including our excellent athletics program that boasts several state championships in several different sports, several student clubs that reflect a wide diversity of interests, and our Associated Students Organization (ASO) emphasizing student participation in campus and off-campus activities.  ASO offers an unparalleled opportunity to expand your leadership skills through participation in the ASO Senate and/or on the ASO Executive Board as well as advocacy at the local, state, and federal levels addressing issues that affect students.


Thanks to California voters, this is an exciting time for Harbor College as we enter the final phase of the implementation of Propositions A and AA and Measure J – the bond programs responsible for several new buildings on our campus including our new Library Learning Resource Center (LLRC) and Science Complex.


Again, welcome to Harbor College.

We look forward to serving you.

Remember, Education Changes Everything!
