During this time of staying in and social distancing, Santa Barbara City College invites everyone in the community — whether they are looking to earn an associate degree, transfer to a four-year university or enjoy life enrichment classes through the School of Extended Learning — to enroll in summer classes.

Following the guidelines issued by the California Department of Health regarding health and safety, classes will be offered online. Students can choose from hundreds of credit classes in everything from accounting to zoology.

The School of Extended Learning is offering more than 200 tuition-free classes, normally held at the Schott and Wake campuses, in a live video-conferencing format. Programs include Adult High School, GED, Career Skills Institute, English as a Second Language, Health and Safety, Parenting and classes for Older Adults.

Two six-week sessions are offered, starting May 18 and June 29. Registration for credit classes is online at sbcc.edu/classes.

Those interested in enrolling in School of Extended Learning classes must register online at http://www.sbcc.edu/extendedlearning. Students are encouraged to register as soon as possible to ensure entry into their desired classes.

SBCC has been named the No. 1 Community College in the nation by the Aspen Institute; and for the third consecutive year, Value Colleges rated SBCC the No. 1 Community College as “a flawless investment.”
