Academics[edit]

With a full schedule of courses leading to over 100 Associate Degrees and Certificates, and a Bachelor's Degree, Skyline College's academic programs aim to prepare students for transfer to a four-year university or to directly enter the workforce.[3]

Skyline College has key transfer agreements with a wide range of public and private colleges and offers 18 Associate Degrees for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T). These degrees offer a streamlined pathway to transfer, securing guaranteed admission with junior standing to the California State University system.[4]

Student government[edit]

The students of Skyline College have established a student body association named Associated Students of Skyline College (ASSC).[5] The association is required by law to "encourage students to participate in the governance of the college".[6]

The ASSC periodically participates in meetings sponsored by a statewide community college student organization named Student Senate for California Community Colleges. The statewide Student Senate is authorized by law "to advocate before the Legislature and other state and local governmental entities".[7]
