History of the College

Los Angeles Mission College is the ninth and youngest college established in the Los Angeles Community College District. It was first located in high schools, churches, office buildings, shopping centers, and other locations scattered throughout the cities of San Fernando and Sylmar, and opened its doors to the public in February 1975 with approximately twelve hundred students. The graduating class of 1975 consisted of a single student, who had transferred to the college that semester. Within two years, over 3,000 students were taking classes in fifty different disciplines, including Administration of Justice, Business, Chemistry, Chicano Studies, English, Family and Consumer Studies, Geography, Journalism, Microbiology, Real Estate, and Zoology. Sixteen years later, in the summer of 1991, the college moved to its permanent campus, built on 22 acres (8.9 ha) of land in the Sylmar neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. In addition to its academic degrees, Mission College also provides vocational education and training in which students may receive certificates in Child Development, Family and Consumer Studies, Paralegal, Computer Applications, and the like.
