Cuesta College participates in the Central Coast Study Abroad Consortium, which is run through Santa Barbara City College. Cuesta College students may participate in any of the consortium programs. Program information, brochures, and applications are available in the Cuesta College Transfer Center or www.sbcc.edu/studyabroad

Programs at SBCC have all been created with students in mind, and that means different destinations, classes that transfer units to universities, and excursions that will immerse you into the cultures abroad. Not to forget, the program cost is up to 50% or less than the cost of a study abroad program at a 4-year institution! With many scholarships available to study abroad, it's something that can be attainable for you!
