Santa Barbara Business College-Santa Maria
Santa Maria, United States- California


University description (as per official university website)


Santa Barbara Business College is one of the oldest colleges in California and the country.

The College was founded in 1888 as a California business college and normal institute. Normal institutes trained teachers at the turn of the 20th century. The primary curriculum focus throughout SBBC's long history has been business.

In recent years, curriculum offerings have expanded to include programs in Allied Health, Information Technology, Paralegal and Criminal Justice in addition to the traditional Business offerings. Santa Barbara Business College also offers Associate degrees to enrich the learning experience and increase lifelong earning potential. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, individuals who have earned an Associate degree will earn on average 30 percent more than those individuals with only a high school diploma or GED.

Establishing very close ties with the business community and changing quickly to meet employer demands have always been hallmarks of this California college's rich history and success. Santa Barbara Business College is an accredited business college that has grown into five campuses, with locations in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Bakersfield, Palm Desert and Ventura, California. We serve thousands of students, alumni and employers each year. Thousands of graduates work and hold important positions in the communities we serve, and we are proud to have educated many generations of the families in these communities.

For more than a century, the market-driven, student-centered, employer-based philosophy serving the Colleges' California communities has been a cornerstone to its successful, long history. Thousands of graduates have benefited from the short-term, career-focused training provided during the long, distinguished history of Santa Barbara Business College in California.

Financial Aid
How to Qualify

Students are eligible for aid if they:

* Have a high school diploma or a GED or receive a passing score on an independently administered examination approved by the Department of Education.
* Enroll as a regular student in an eligible program.
* Are a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
* Are registered with Selective Service (if required).
* Have a valid Social Security Number (SSN).
* Make satisfactory academic progress.
* Are not in default of a student loan or owe a refund on a Federal Pell Grant.


Federal Pell Grants

A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Pell Grants are only awarded to undergraduate students who have not earned a Bachelor's degree. SBBC requires students to apply for the Pell Grant by completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). An ISIR (Institutional Student Information Record) or SAR (Student Aid Report) is generated, and the EFC (Expected Family Contribution) is calculated on the report and will indicate whether a student is eligible for a Pell Grant.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)

The FSEOG is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need - students with the lowest EFC. FSEOG is available only to students who qualify for the Pell Grant.
Cal Grant C

The Cal Grant program is administered by the State of California. The Cal Grant C assists students in occupational/career training programs. To qualify, a student must be enrolled in a vocational school in a program from four to 24 months long. The application deadline for the Cal Grant is generally March 2. It is possible to transfer a Cal Grant to SBBC from a previous school.

Federal Perkins Loan

The Perkins Loan is a low interest rate loan (5 percent) for those who demonstrate a financial need. Students must repay this loan. If awarded, repayment begins nine months after the borrower completes or terminates his or her education. The minimum monthly payment is $40. Students must complete the FAFSA to be considered for the Perkins Loan.
Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan

A subsidized loan is awarded on the basis of financial need. If a student qualifies for this loan, the Federal government pays the interest for the full time the student is in school and for an additional six months after the last date of attendance.
Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan

An unsubsidized loan is not awarded on the basis of need. If a student qualifies for this loan, this loan accrues interest from the date the loan is disbursed until it is paid in full.
Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (FPLUS)

The FPLUS loan allows parents of students who are dependent by federal definition to borrow for educational costs. To be eligible to receive the FPLUS loan, a parent will be required to pass a credit check. If the parent does not pass the credit check, the student can receive the Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. Repayment usually begins within 60 days after the final loan is issued with the interest beginning to accrue at the time of the first disbursement.

Institutional Scholarship

Santa Barbara Business College awards a maximum of 20 $1,000 scholarships annually for each campus. Scholarships are awarded to high school seniors. The application deadline is April 15; awards are made by May 1.

Students attending Santa Barbara Business College may, if eligible, receive funds to meet educational costs from the Veterans Education Benefits, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Employee Tuition Reimbursement, JTPA, and other organizations and agencies providing scholarships and grants.
Federal Work-study and State Work-study

Work-study allows undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need to earn money for some of their educational expenses by working for a nonprofit agency. Students will be paid at least the current minimum wage, but possibly higher, depending on the type of work and skills required. Students must complete the FAFSA to be considered for Work-study funds. The Placement Department will help eligible students locate jobs.
