Contra Costa College, founded in 1948, is located in San Pablo, California and serves as the West Campus of the Contra Costa Community College District. The school offers associate degrees and certificates in a wide variety of programs in order to serve the diverse educational needs of the community.
Since the school recognizes that traditional classroom work may not always be the best option for its students, they offer day, evening, and hybrid online classes. Many other services are available to make the college experience successful, such as tutoring, childcare, and job placement.
There is also the opportunity for high school dropouts and those students who are way behind in their coursework to participate in Gateway to College where students are situated in small groups to work towards their diploma. Fostering even deeper relationships with high schools, the WCCUSD Middle College High School is housed on campus. Students who join not only receive their high school diplomas but also complete college level courses, which gives them a huge head start in higher education.
