You can save thousands of dollars by completing your first two years of university coursework in our college and transfer to a four-year university for a bachelor's degree. You can also take pre-major courses required for entering a professional degree program, the programs in a busienss school, medical school, law school, pharmacy school, dentist school, etc.  San Bernardino Valley College has transfer course agreements with most universities in California. The college's courses are also transferable to many universities outside of California.

To create a clear pathway to California State University (CSU), the college started offering transfer degree programs in 2013. The college's tuition and fees are only 50% of the tuition and fees of a four-year public university, or 25% of a four-year private university.

The estimated annual cost of attending San Bernardino Valley College is $22,500 which includes tuition and fees of about $9,000 (Enrollment Fee + Enrollment Fee-Non California Resident + Capital Outlay), books and educational supplies, health insurance and the cost of living.

International students are not allowed to work outside of the college, and on campus jobs are not guaranteed.  As a result, international students can't count on the income from employment in the US to cover the costs during the period of their attendance at SBVC. Proof of sufficient funds to cover the above expenditures is required from an international applicant, or his or her sponsor.
