Calbright College was established with equity and accessibility in its roots. In June of 2018, legislation was signed and passed into law by then-Governor Jerry Brown and the first online-only community college was founded. Our goal is to provide economic mobility for working adults who lack easy access to traditional forms of higher education.
The new online college was officially named Calbright College in June of 2019. We will commence our pilot programs in October 2019, beginning with partnerships in medical coding, cybersecurity and career readiness training.
We are excited to move forward on this journey toward upward mobility for all Californians. We will continue to update our website as more programs and opportunities become available. For the millions of underserved and unheard Californians: we hear you and we’re here.
