About the college

Glendale Community College opened its doors in 1927. The college offers classes to day and evening students with many others graduating from both its job training programs and adult educating program. The goal of Glendale is to train each and every student regardless of age, sex, or background. The mission is simple- teach those who want to succeed. The learning never has to stop. Training every student ensures that futures are bright, education is a priority and the graduates become productive and successful members of the society.


Glendale, California is just minutes away from the cultural and multi-diverse city of Los Angeles. The Glendale campus here is neatly tucked away on the hillside just above Glendale and the views from the school are amazing. Students have beaches, mountains and the desert all within minutes of the campus. Student activities often involve the outdoors with perfect weather and also theatre arts, dance and many other campus goodies.

The career training at Glendale Community College puts students in company with 22 computer labs and high tech facilities. The college has quite a high honor too with its transfer status. Glendale’s transfers to the University of California are much higher than those of any other community college in the San Gabriel and San Fernando Valleys combined.


Glendale offers career and technical programs as well as general education and transfer programs.
