Degrees and Certificates

Santa Monica College offers a comprehensive variety of degrees and certificates, as well as preparation for students to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Many SMC degrees and certificates may now also be earned online (see for details). For a complete list of opportunities available.

Students who plan to transfer need to know which courses completed at Santa Monica College will be accepted at the college/university they plan to attend.

Santa Monica College articulation agreements with the California State University and the University of California can be found on the Articulation System Stimulating Inter-institutional Transfer website ASSIST(opens in new window).

It is highly recommended that you meet with an SMC counselor regularly as transfer information and requirements do change.
