Welcome to Santa Monica College!

Take a shortcut to becoming an SMC student!

Our Welcome Center offers new students a “one-stop shop” for admission, enrollment, orientation, academic counseling, financial aid, and more. No appointment necessary—just walk in the door! The Welcome Center (number 32 on the campus map) is located next to the Health Services Center.

Time Saving 6-Week Format Boosts Performance

SMC’s Winter 2018 session is now one of the largest schedule of classes available in California, with hundreds of general education and skill-building classes offered in class and online.
