Parents & Families
For over 40 years, College of Alameda has been encouraging students to believe in themselves and reach their highest potential. We strive to provide our students with educational experiences that challenge their thinking, empower them to stretch beyond their wildest dreams, and prepare them to enter the 21st-century global marketplace.
At College of Alameda, you’ll find a diverse, welcoming, and active campus community. Our students, of all ages and backgrounds, hail from over 50 countries, as well as Alameda, Oakland and the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Our unique location on the island of Alameda and our spacious campus provide a quiet, focused environment where students can learn and grow.
Their Future Begins Here
College of Alameda’s academic programs enable our students to transfer to four-year colleges and universities, earn degrees and certificates in academic and occupational fields, prepare for positions in the workforce, improve basic learning skills, and expand their general knowledge.
Fees, Financial Aid, and Much More
At College of Alameda we offer high quality education at an affordable price. Our fees are a small fraction of what you’d pay for the same classes at a private college or university. Financial aid is also available year-round, and can help eligible students cover enrollment fees and other college costs like books and supplies.
You’ll also find a wealth of other resources and opportunities to support student success in and out of the classroom — from on-campus student activities, to athletics, to career training and placement. Visit our Student Services page, or click on the icons below to learn more.
