A PROJECT OF THE County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency

Community Colleges

Community colleges are two-year colleges that offer associate degrees (two-year degree) and certificates in occupational programs that prepare students for entry-level jobs, as well as arts and sciences programs that transfer to four-year colleges and universities. If you are 18 or over, no high school diploma is needed to attend a community college. If you are under 18, you must have a high school diploma or GED. If you are still in high school, you may take select community college courses for high school AND college credit. You must have permission from your high school to do this. See your high school counselor for information and required forms.

Community colleges also have continuing education centers that provide adults the opportunity to renew their learning experiences through noncredit vocational, basic skills, life skills and enrichment classes at neighborhood locations throughout the county.
