Santa Barbara City College President John Romo has taken steps to add a bachelor’s degree program to the SBCC curriculum for the first time. Students would be able to spend just three years completing coursework both in SBCC classrooms and online with Indiana University, which would issue the certificate. The college has also identified a potential site for a 600-student dorm between the Sports Pavilion and the Marine Diving building. The city has long urged the college to help house the new residents it brings to the city; almost 30 percent of SBCC’s 17,500 students last year were from outside the district.
