The Welcome Center
Our goal in the Welcome Center is to authentically engage, welcome, and connect students with the tools and resources needed to empower them to achieve their goals. Through our outreach efforts, which includes support for high school students, out of state students, and transfer students from other colleges and universities, we facilitate a successful start to their first year college experience in an inclusive and equitable environment.
New Resources to Support You
In accordance with guidelines laid out by the CDC to combat the spread of COVID-19 and out of concern for the safety of our students and broader community, Santa Monica College has moved all support services to an online environment.
We have implemented many new features so that we can continue to provide you with the proper support services to help you succeed in this new remote environment.
Explore new resources below to get off to a strong start. We look forward to hearing from you!
