Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) is a community college located in South Lake Tahoe, California. At an altitude of 6,229 feet (1,899 m), it is the highest college in the state. The college opened in 1975 without a campus; students attended classes at a closed-down local motel located on Lake Tahoe Boulevard. A student recalls the motel-classrooms uniquely having working fireplaces. Most classes in 1975-76 had ten students or fewer, the class catalog totaling a few typewritten pages. The college now services approximately 2,900 students every quarter.

The 164-acre (0.66 km2) campus contains a 192-seat black box theater; science, computer, and art labs; a 26,000-square-foot (2,400 m2) gymnasium; a demonstration garden; and a 27,000-square-foot (2,500 m2) library and art gallery, which opened in September 2006. A student center that includes a cafe, internet terminals, and teaching kitchens for the culinary arts program opened in 2002.

The college has full accreditation through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Equivalent and transferable courses successfully completed at LTCC are given full credit by the University of California and California State University systems. LTCC also offers various financial aid opportunities such as the Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver.
