San José City College History
In 1986 the San Jose City College District was renamed the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District to incorporate the naming of our sister college Evergreen Valley College which opened in 1975.
In 1999, 2004, and 2010 voters within the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District passed bond measures to help rebuild the campus and provide modern technology and facilities for the students at San Jose City College.
Located close to California’s Silicon Valley, the college offers all the benefits of being close to the world’s hub of technological innovation and entrepreneurship. San Jose City College currently serves the Milpitas, San Jose, and other surrounding communities and serves approximately 10,000 students per semester.
