First Year Experience Program

The First Year Experience (FYE) program, offered through SMC’s Welcome Center, helps you make a smooth transition from high school to college, sort out your career and education goals, and create a plan of action to reach those goals.

FYE will familiarize you with the SMC campus and its wide variety of student resources and programs (including Summer Bridge), and introduce you to a support network of students, faculty, and staff.

Other FYE benefits during your first year at SMC include:

  • Academic advising and options for a faster path to transfer;

  • Enrollment assistance;

  • Guaranteed enrollment in English and math classes;

  • Early registration for other classes;

  • Free tutoring and other support to help you improve your math, reading, writing, and study skills; and

  • Meeting with counselors on a regular basis to follow up with college and career plans.

To find out more about the First Year Experience program, stop by the Welcome Center or visit the FYE website (www.smc.edu/FYE). Please note that space is limited and students will be accepted into the FYE program on a first-come, first-served basis.

Black Collegians Program

The Santa Monica College Black Collegians is an academic-transfer program that promotes academic excellence and guides students through the transfer process. Students are assisted in examining their options for transfer and in completing an educational plan which will lead to transferring to the institution of their choice.

Since 1990, nearly four hundred SMC Black Collegians have transferred to four-year colleges and universities. They are currently attending or have graduated from institutions such as Spelman College, Howard University, CSU Long Beach, USC, Stanford, UCLA, and the University of California, Berkeley.

Some of the special benefits that students receive from the Black Collegians Program include: a personal counselor who will support and guide students throughout their stay at SMC; a special “College Success” course that will help students strengthen skills to enhance academic success; innovative academic and personal growth forums; a mentor who will advise and direct; access to a network of supportive peers, teachers and staff members; scholastic recognition and monetary awards.

Students who feel they can benefit from the opportunities offered by the Black Collegians Program are encouraged to apply in the Transfer/Counseling or the African American Collegian Centers. For additional information, contact Counselor Sherri Bradford, (310) 434-3635.

Study Abroad

Studying abroad is an enriching, life-changing experience! There is no substitute for the experience of living in another culture and learning—first-hand—how others think, live, and work.

Santa Monica College offers faculty-led Study Abroad programs designed to take students to another country and immerse them in an exciting and engaging learning program. Each program gives students the opportunity to earn SMC credit as they expand their own intercultural awareness and foster a more global experience. Students who successfully complete a minimum of three semester units while attending a Study Abroad program will fulfill SMC’s Global Citizenship graduation requirement for the Associate degree.

For program information, please visit the IEC’s Study Abroad website (www.smc.edu/studyabroad).

Mentor Program in the Arts

Santa Monica College’s Mentor Program in the Arts provides extremely gifted students in the fine and applied arts with one-on-one support training by professionals in their special fields. Designed for individuals whose talents exceed the scope of the traditional curriculum at the College, the Mentor Program is tailored to students whose continuing education or professional careers depend on juried performances or compiled portfolios of work.

Students in the program embark on a course of study in an intense learning environment with individual or small-group instruction in two areas: art and music. The program usually includes a public exhibition or performance. Upon completing the program, students are individually guided through the process of transferring to a university, art school, music conservatory, or other appropriate institution to continue their studies. In some cases, students are helped to launch their professional careers directly through placement in apprenticeship programs or employment with professionals in the field.

To participate, students must demonstrate exceptional ability and commitment. Each department has its own policies for admission, prerequisites, and corequisites in the program. The selection process is determined by a faculty committee and includes a portfolio review or an audition. This review usually takes place at the end of a semester for participation in the program the following semester. Students selected may participate for up to four semesters under the direct supervision and guidance of a designated Mentor.

Through the SMC Associates support group, scholarships, materials, and other resources are often made available to help these students. Students interested in participating in the Mentor Program should contact the chair of the department in which they would like to study as soon as possible. For other information, contact the appropriate Department Chair.

Internship Program

An internship is an off-campus or on-campus work experience that is designed to enhance student learning in the classroom. Through internships, students achieve “Learning Objectives” designed to help expand career options, learn about the ‘work culture,’ and develop new job skills.

Students interested in becoming interns can go to www.smc.edu/internship to find out how to get involved in SMC’s Internship Program, and to

www.smc.edu/jobs4u to find out about the many kinds of internships that are available.

To be eligible for an internship class, a student must be a ‘continuing student’ at Santa Monica College. A continuing student is one who attended SMC the previous Fall or Spring semester and completed at least 6 units. For example, a Fall semester or Summer session intern is required to have attended SMC the previous Spring semester and completed at least 6 units. A Spring semester intern is required to have attended SMC the previous Fall semester and completed at least 6 units.

To enroll in an internship, students are required to attend a one-hour Internship Orientation meeting at the beginning of the semester. Visit our website (www.smc.edu/internship) or call the Career Services Center for the orientation meeting schedule.

Students earn college credit based on the number of internship hours worked. Each unit of college credit requires 60 hours of unpaid (volunteer), or 75 hours of paid work per semester. The General Internship classes are listed in this schedule of classes under Counseling and Testing. The classes are Counseling 90A, B, C, and D, and range from 1 to 4 units of credit. General Internships need not be related to the student’s educational or career goals.

F-1 students must see the immigration coordinator at the International Educational Center before enrolling in an internship.

Several departments at SMC also offer Specific Internships that are related to a student’s major or career goal. These internships combine on-the-job learning experiences with college curriculum, and are for students who are beginning, changing, or advancing in a career, or who are moving ahead in a major. Students can call the Career Services Center at (310) 434-4337 to find out which departments offer internships.

SMC’s Career Services Center hosts an Internship Fair each Spring semester, offering students the opportunity to meet potential employers and ask questions about the internships being offered. Visit our website (www.smc.edu/internship) to find out when the next Internship Fair will be held.

For further information or for help in finding an internship, call the Career Services Center at
