Dear Students,

Welcome to Yuba College!

We’re glad you’ve chosen to make YC a part of your pathway to success.

Our mission is to prepare a diverse student population to excel in a rapidly changing, interdependent world. At YC, you’ll find tutoring services, academic counselors, and other resources to support your educational path. You’ll also find athletics, clubs, organizations, and service opportunities to create a holistic environment to pursue your goals.

Whether you are here to explore a new career, take your first college classes, seek personal enrichment, or start on a transfer degree pathway for your bachelor’s degree, you will find mentors in our faculty, staff, coaches, and the administration that will last throughout your journey.

The beginning of any academic year brings both excitement and nervousness. This journey will require endurance, persistence, and grit. We are here to encourage you as you navigate one of our 115 degree and certification options, along with the other 9,000 students we serve each year.

As an open-access institution, we aim to meet students where they are and connect them to the resources they need to succeed. Our affordable and high-quality programs meet the needs of our community. We work closely with industry partners to ensure our students leave our professional-technical programs ready to work. We also partner with four-year institutions to align our courses for transfer opportunities.

Since 1927, we’ve been a part of the Yuba/Sutter County areas. We’ve awarded more than 12,000 degrees and certificates in just the last 20 years. Our goal is to continue to be a school of choice that leads you to the career, degree, or pathway you’ve designed.

This is your college. Our goal is to help you reach your highest potential.
