Ventura County Community College District (VCCCD) is comprised of Moorpark College, Oxnard College, Ventura College, the Ventura College Santa Paula Site, and the District Office in Camarillo.

Thank you for considering how our community colleges can help you meet your educational goals! Our nearly 1,800 full and part-time faculty, classified staff, and administrators are focused on supporting the success of each student. We serve nearly 32,000 students each year and help them access quality higher education courses and programs leading to certificates and degrees in preparation for employment, job skill upgrading, and/or transfer into baccalaureate programs. We value our connections with industry, government, and educational partners that help us create relevant and unique programs and pathways for our students.

Our colleges can help you apply for federal and state resources that are available for students meeting eligibility requirements. Students can also apply for scholarships and other resources through the college Foundations. The colleges also have unique programs to get you off to a great start that include orientation, assessment, and development of your personalized educational plan.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and all employees throughout the District, thank you for exploring your local community colleges.

We are only a short distance from you, and we also have many online courses as well as flexible day and evening schedules at our locations. Your path to success in higher education is waiting for you here. We would like to work with you to help you achieve your dreams!
