Academic Flexibility at Santa Barbara Business College - Ventura: Academic flexibility was very good here, the classes are on a semi-set schedule so once you get in a groove it is easy to flow through the program.

Online Courses at Santa Barbara Business College - Ventura: The online course I took (Spanish) was not a great experiance. The study load was high (assignments, quizzes, reading, listening) but the overall testing was poor. To be fair, learning Spanish without speaking any of it to anyone in the class is a pretty poor model for language acquisition... I learned a bit about grammar but the course was obviously designed by a language major and trying to figure out what a "past participle" or "conjugation" is/does in Spanish is niegh impossible because I didn't know what they did in English! I ended up using the Doulingo app to get through the class (which used NO fancy grammar words).

Academic Experience at Santa Barbara Business College - Ventura: Facilities are about average, desks and chairs are fine, school desktop computers are unbelievably slow, wifi is pretty slow too unfortunately. I do like that the projectors are aimed at white boards making slide interactions much more valuable.

The general ed courses are weak, the instructors seem to parrot info from the book/slides and don't display a deep knowledge of the course material, however the job placement courses are solid for young students heading out into the workforce as is the course on goals and stress mitigation.

Workload is average for a student with a full time job and probably low for a student without a job.

They seem to provide decent access to job fairs and opportunities but I do not actually know any students that have gotten jobs or internships from them.

Overall Experience at Santa Barbara Business College - Ventura: School is aimed at moving lower income students through the system and into jobs. They seem especially well focused on nursing students. The school is technology focused and issues Kindle tablets for all students to download textbooks instead of using physical ones. Conversely, the wifi is slow and the desktop computers are terribly slow...

The general ed teachers are hit or miss, all seem interested in their students but most seem to just read the powerpoints rather than have a deep knowledge of the subject.

Campus Resources at Santa Barbara Business College - Santa Maria: The tuition may seem scary at first but it is ALL worth it! I do not regret picking SBBC. The staff takes time out of their day to make a conversation with you, this makes me feel like I am important. Second of all, the instructor makes sure students understand the material before moving on and still manages to stay in task at the end of the course. The dean, the clerk, the financial aid.. are always in a great mood!

Career Services at Santa Barbara Business College - Santa Maria: the job prospects are looking great especially for my major because technology is growing very fast and it is creating a lot of jobs. the career center is amazing, once you graduate they help look for a job and ask you if your interested in their findings before they sent out your resume.

Academic Flexibility at Santa Barbara Business College - Santa Maria: my experience overall has been great and being an online student gives the flexibility i need to work on my own time. as far as transferring credits, i am a first time student, so this does not apply to me.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Santa Barbara Business College - Santa Maria: the financial people are great and they explain everything down to the very smallest detail. the tuition i am going to pay is a bit high but it is worth for the education i'm receiving. one tip i have for anyone who goes here is don't hesitate to apply to as many scholarships as you can because you will need the extra money to pay your tuition.

Campus Resources at Santa Barbara Business College - Santa Maria: for being an online course the only resources we have are academic ones. for example, we have our own online library where we can find countless articles of all sorts. we also have our ebook library to access our course books which is very interactive and it lets you do a lot more with your books.

Student Body at Santa Barbara Business College - Santa Maria: The great majority of the student body at my school are females. the most popular programs are nursing and criminal justice. there are absolutely no acceptance challenges at this school. Economically, I would say most of the students are middle class independent young adults.
