If you have an "Orientation Hold," you must complete the SMC Online Orientation to enroll.
If you have an "Assessment Hold," you need to take both the English/ESL and mathematics. Go to the Assessment Center in Liberal Arts 109.
Make sure you know when and where your classes meet. Check your schedule on Corsair Connect. Printable Campus Maps are available.
Use SMC GO to help you navigate the campus.
Go to all your classes and participate in online classes the first week to avoid risk of being dropped.
"Crash" courses (go to the first class) and ask the instructor for an add code if you couldn't enroll in a class.
Get your your books at the SMC Bookstore. The SMC Bookstore will be open on Saturday, August 26 from 9 a.m-3 p.m.
Parking & Transportation
Board BBB for free using your current AS sticker.
Ask the driver for a “Metro Rail” transfer for 50¢ and pay with coins.
You will get a special TAP-enabled transfer.
Tap the transfer on the validator/turnstile at the Expo station.
Drop-Offs: are designated as a drop-off zone on Pico and 19th Street. Your Uber driver’s GPS will now direct them to this location to drop you off. Do the same for all ride-share programs (Lyft, Taxi, etc.). Drivers who block traffic, driveways, parking lots, and bus stops will be subject to traffic tickets.
Pick-Ups: When hailing a car, the Uber app will automatically drop your pin location to Pico and 19th to be picked up. Your driver will be waiting for you at this location only as the app will no longer allow pickups anywhere else around campus for safety reasons.
Student ID Card
Get your student ID card at the Bursar’s Office. The ID costs $13.
You can also get it at the Financial Aid Office during the first two weeks of the Fall or Spring.
Pay the Associated Students membership fee, get your sticker, and then ride the BBB for free.
