SBCC Announces Good Money News


Santa Barbara City College officials announced good news for the second year in a row since the recession at a recent budget forum. Enrollment fees will not increase (except for out-of-state and international students), all employees will receive a minor cost-of-living adjustment (0.86 percent following a 1.57 percent increase last year), and there will be a 3 percent restoration. Additionally, the Center for Lifelong Learning ​— ​founded in 2012 and offering noncredit, elective courses ​— ​has taken pressure off the general fund because it is self-sustaining.
