International Students

Why not receive a great education, improve your English skills, and make new friends at Santa Barbara City College? And, you won't get any better weather or view of the ocean than right on our campus.

We don't just say we have ocean views from campus, we're actually steps from the ocean. Yes, steps--- 176.5 steps to be exact. *

Our International Student Support Programs include International Student Academics Program (ISAP) and English Language Studies Program (ELSP). (No TOEFL score is required.)

Whether you are working toward improving your English skills or planning to transfer to earn a bachelor's degree, SBCC is a place where international students from more than seventy different countries excel academically and socially.

Experiencing the United States at Santa Barbara City College will provide you with an excellent support group as well as a safe campus and community. Our International Student Support Program is here for you!

*Based on 5'8 female stride length; so if you are taller or have longer legs, it's even fewer steps!
