Welcome to San Jose City College! We invite you to discover the opportunities at one of the most innovative community colleges in the United States. 

Located in the heart of the Silicon Valley, California, San José City College has provided an education of the highest quality since 1921.  

Our new state-of-the-art facilities combined with a distinguished faculty, comprehensive curriculum, small class size, excellent support services, and vibrant campus life make San Jose City College an ideal environment for our international students. 

Students also choose to study at SJCC because of our strong academic transfer preparation programs which parallel the requirements for the first two years of a four-year university education.   

Students can transfer to earn a bachelor's degree from outstanding universities at less than half the cost of university tuition. 

The college also offers a variety of one and two-year technical, occupational and pre-professional courses of study.
