East LA College

Each year, ELAC helps more than 1,000 of its students transfer to the University of California and California State University systems. Forty-seven percent of its students are focused on transferring to a 4-year school while 18 percent are working toward career preparedness. The college's 80-acre campus is located 10 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in suburban Monterey Park. ELAC’s focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement) is evident in the 120,000 SF Science Career & Mathematics Complex (SCMC). Finishing the SCMC will complete the east-west campus quad, which also includes the Campus Student Center Bookstore and the recently commissioned Ernest H. Moreno Language Arts and Humanities building - the State of California’s largest classroom building.
