The health and safety of students, families and the communities we serve is our highest priority. San Jose Evergreen Community College District is doing our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by suspending in-person operations. We are currently providing online classroom instruction and student services.

The State Community College Chancellor has advised us to prepare to continue providing online classroom instruction into the fall. Therefore, we are doing all we can to update online learning technology and increase capacity, ensuring that all students have equal access to learning opportunities, no matter what the circumstances are.

These are unprecedented times and during this period of uncertainty, our local community colleges will continue to play an important role in providing educational opportunities for the communities we serve and ensuring that the workforce needs of our state and region are met. In fact, this emergency has highlighted the importance of community colleges, which train 70 percent of California’s nurses and 80 percent of the state’s police officers, firefighters, and EMTs.


These are the guiding principles of the San José-Evergreen Community College District.

Student Success is the heart of our mission and we've hired the best and brightest faculty and staff to ensure that our students are well prepared when they transfer to a university, enter the workforce, or embark on a path of lifelong learning.

San Jose – Evergreen CCD Board of Trustees Places College Transfer, Classroom Repair and Safety Measure and Career Training, Student Services and Affordability Measure on the November Ballot

(San Jose, Calif.) — After many supportive public comments from the community, an independent community survey, and extensive community engagement conducted over the past nine months, the San Jose – Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD) board of trustees voted unanimously to place College Transfer, Classroom Repair and Safety; and Career Training, Student Services and Affordability measures on the November 2020 ballot. If enacted, these measures will allow SJECCD to maintain a high standard of local, affordable education through economic recovery.

"San Jose City and Evergreen Valley colleges are key pathways to higher education for local low-income students and students of color, many of whom depend on our colleges for training in the high-demand jobs that allow them to move into the middle class," said Dr. Byron D. Clift Breland, SJECCD chancellor. "As our region faces large-scale unemployment and a recession, it's more important than perhaps ever before to invest in quality education and workforce training."

Supporting Students in Need and Maintaining Affordable Education Are Top Priorities among SJECCD Constituents

(San Jose, Calif.) —San José – Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD) commissioned an independent survey this month showing residents are highly compassionate towards the current challenges faced by today's local students—including food insecurities, hunger, and homelessness. Another top priority identified by the community was maintaining affordable education at a reasonable price to continue to increase opportunities for local students to earn college credits, certifications and job skills, and transfer to four-year universities.

"The community realizes that the cost of housing in the Bay Area is continuing to rise and is getting out of control," said SJECCD Chancellor Byron D. Clift Breland. "Many students at San Jose City College and Evergreen Valley College are facing homelessness and hunger and we must ensure they have access to basic needs like food and childcare so they can continue to pursue their education and receive the skills they need to stay in school and work in our community."  (Please click here for continued reading...)

about sjeccd

For over 99 years, San José City College has been providing education and workforce opportunities to our district residents in San José; and for more than 45 years, Evergreen Valley College has educated our citizenry in south San José and Milpitas.

Our Community College Center for Economic Mobility (formerly Workforce Institute), established in 1988, is a training partner with many corporations as we work to develop and maintain a vital economy in the “South Bay”.  

Demographic changes, economic conditions, educational reforms, and the need for preparing students for postsecondary education prompted Measure G Bond funded initiative to build the San José-Evergreen Community College Extension (formerly "Joint Use 21st Century Post-Secondary Education Center") in Milpitas. This is a joint project between SJECCD and Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) which began holding its first classes in spring 2017 with the following goals:

1. Promote a seamless system of higher education services
2. Expand access to higher education in underserved areas of the District
3. Improve regional economic development opportunities by providing
    access to career and technical education

Educating more than 26,000 students each year, our colleges are hubs of teaching, learning and innovation in one of the most exciting cities in the world. ​
