Coastline College


I believe in the mission of community colleges. Although, I am particularly proud of Coastline's unique beginning and on-going dedication to teaching and learning innovations. We have always welcomed students of all backgrounds, and we continue to provide all of our students educational opportunities anytime...anywhere.

A Message from Coastline's President

Dear Students:

I am pleased to welcome you to Coastline College. Thank you for selecting us to be your education partner. Whether you are pursuing your Associate degree, career education, or university transfer preparation, you have made an excellent choice! Investing in a college education is still the smartest investment you can make. Research consistently shows that college graduates earn more than those with only a high school diploma-as much as 56% more, over the course of their lifetime. As a regionally accredited California community college, Coastline has earned an outstanding reputation for its first-class student support services and programs, low student-to-faculty ratio, high return on investment (ROI). and academic excellence.

Coastline is continuing to strengthen and expand academic degree and transfer programs, as well as Career and Technical Education (CTE). The Learning 1ST Program, a fully online Associate-to-Bachelor's degree program, provides students with a direct pathway to obtain their Associate degree and immediately transfer into their chosen bachelor's degree program. Career and Technical Programs at Coastline are upskilling today's students for current, emerging, and future technology-related careers.

I urge you to take advantage of the comprehensive array of support services that are available to you at Coastline. A great step would be to meet with one of our caring and dedicated counselors who will help get you build your pathway to success.
