About Oxnard College

Oxnard College is a fully accredited public community college providing quality academic and career programs since 1975. Ideally situated on California’s Central Coast and within two miles of Ventura County beaches, Oxnard College was founded on 118 acres in south Oxnard and is experiencing major reconstruction as part of the Measure S Bond-funded expansion of the Ventura County Community College District.

High School juniors and seniors may also attend Oxnard College concurrently, tuition free. Oxnard College offers 18 certificate programs, 17 Associate degrees for transfer and 37 Associate degrees with classes in over 60 disciplines.

We have transfer agreements with California State Universities, University of California, and many private higher education institutions to facilitate access into baccalaureate programs.
