SBCC has once again received recognition for its outstanding educational programs.
College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources,
ranked Santa Barbara City College at #9 for Best Online programs. The full ranking
can be viewed here.
According to College Choice, the ranking was based on three categories: institutional performance score, diversity score, and tuition. Schools were given additional points for the number of fully online associate degree programs. Sources for the data come from colleges’ websites, nationally recognized U.S. News & World Report and The National Center for Education Statistics.
In its description of Santa Barbara City College, College Choice noted that SBCC “offers technical support for its distance education students, as well as many of the same services provided to on-campus students. Admission and registration support is provided online. Academic support includes tutoring, library services, and counseling.”
“I am very pleased to see that Santa Barbara City College has received this recognition from College Choice,” said Superintendent/President Anthony E. Beebe. “It reflects the dedication that our faculty have toward our students whether on campus or online, and acknowledges the skill and commitment of our Distance Education faculty and staff.”
SBCC offers fourteen Associate in Arts degrees, six Associate in Science degrees, and seven Certificates of Achievement, completely online.
