Welcome to Santa Barbara City College!
I wish you a warm welcome to Santa Barbara City College. As a Community College, our doors are open to students of all ages. We are here to help you reach your educational goals.
Investing in our Community through the SBCC Promise - The SBCC Promise provides any local high school graduate within the Santa Barbara Community College District the opportunity to attend SBCC at no cost. Students must commit to a full-time course load over two years. Learn more at sbccpromise.org

Our programs advance career and life skills, and offer bridges to credit. We have something for everyone in our community - whether you are seeking to advance your career skills or learn something new. Most of our classes are tuition-free.

Transfer to a four-year College or University - The SBCC Transfer Center provides a variety of services, resources, and programs designed to assist you every step of the way in your transfer process. Whatever your transfer destination; University of California (UC) campuses, California State Universities (CSU), California Private/Independent Colleges, or out-of-state universities, the Transfer Center is committed to helping make your transfer goal a reality.
Career and Technical Education!
The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Programs are career driven approaches that help prepare students for employment directly after they leave SBCC. The instructors have often worked, or are currently working, in the respective field and they tend to make use of hands-on learning and focus on the programs of study. SBCC has over 50 programs ranging from Automotive to Nursing, with many of the programs offering certificates and degree options.
Thank you for your interest in Santa Barbara City College,
Helen Benjamin, Ph.D.
