Request an SMC Rep

Want a private workshop just for your students? You can request a Santa Monica College Representative to meet with your high school students or attend your college fair online. This form is for high school college & guidance counselors and community group leaders to submit their request.

We appreciate as much advance notice as possible, three weeks minimum is optimal, but we will do our best to accommodate all requests.
