From On-Campus Tutoring in every subject you will be taught to Volunteer Tutors through the Phi Theta Honor Society, you will have no reason to ever get less than a B. The school's Gateway Program will ensure you a gateway to success with tutors also inside your classroom as well as in the Gateway Center from 9-5 everyday of the week. The teachers are immaculate when it comes to their teaching and down-to-earth when it comes to understanding you.

    What is there not to love about a college who is literally on the edge of the beach! Not only are all the teachers the most knowledgeable, all the students on campus are very diversified so you get a very wide range of cultures which gives you a better understanding of what is out there in the world. Also, all staff members are extremely helpful and will help guide you in which ever path of your choice, even if you change it many times like i have.

    I am an online only student and the Professors seem to care quite a bit the students. If I have a problem with anything they are ready to help. The departments that I have contacted via phone (I am not in CA) were very helpful and patient.

    SBCC is one of the best schools I have ever seen! With a beautiful campus and amazing professors, they offer every chance to succeed and be noticed by schools you want to transfer to. Have I mentioned it was honored as the #1 CC in the entire country this last year?

    Santa Barbara City College is bar none, one of the finest institutions of community college learning that exists in the country. The academics are engaging and challenging, and prepare a student for life at a major university elsewhere. And on top of all of that, it's situated in one of the most beautiful places on the west coast.

    The campus is absolutely beautiful and very inspiring, the teachers are wonderful and the school has a lot to offer by way of academics and student activities. There is an abundance of resources available to whoever needs them and studying here provides a strong foundation that prepares any student for transferring to the university of their choice. It's a great place to start working towards a degree, for those just getting started as well as anyone returning to school after a long absence.
