The Santa Barbara City College has many programs that would help you to be ready to transfer to an university. In addition, its teachers are really good, and the campus is also as well.
Rodolfo from Santa Barbara, CA
I really just can't wait! This school is for kids who yearn to go to a University or University style school, but either can't do it based on academics or money. This is one of the top 10 city colleges in the nation and it lives up to that being atop the ocean and having that university style feel!! Literally am anxious to go to college now.
