​The Outreach & Recruitment office provides in-state and out-of-state prospective students with an overview of the education options available to them at Santa Monica College. Our counselors help students navigate the college application and matriculation process, as well as inform them of the various programs available to help them succeed.

We are proud to be the leader among California's 112 community colleges in transferring students to the University of California, University of Southern California, and Loyola Marymount University. Our counselors and staff work with new students one-on-one to tailor the academic path that best suits the student's need and help them get accepted into the 4-year college of their choice.

We also help students with Federal and State-based Financial Aid, Campus Tours, Prep2Test, Assessment, Orientation, Counseling, First Semester Educational Planning and Enrollment, Housing, Residency, and Student & Academic Support Services.​
