The college is supported by tuition, local property taxes and state revenue, and is directed by an elected, seven-member board of education. LBCC's 104-acre Albany, Oregon campus is just 11 miles east of Corvallis.

Three off-campus centers provide access to classes in Corvallis, Lebanon, and Sweet Home. Community Education and workforce development courses are also offered. LBCC was established to offer a variety of educational opportunities including general education courses, professional technical training, lower-division college transfer courses, continuing education classes, lifelong learning opportunities, distance education, credit courses during evening hours and on weekends, so students can earn a degree without having to attend to class on weekdays, adult basic education programs, and education programs for students with disabilities.
