Attention: We take the health and safety of all of you extremely seriously, especially during this COVID-19 crisis. As a result, the Ventura County Community College District has closed all campuses to in-person services effective immediately and throughout the Fall 2020 semester. We will keep you informed as status updates become available.
Mission and Program Purpose
For over 38 years, the Ventura College East Campus, as an extension of Ventura College, has been an educational leader providing a positive and accessible learning environment that is responsive to the needs of students. VCEC promotes success, develops students to their full potential, creates lifelong learners, and fosters positive human values for successful living and membership in a global environment, for the Santa Clara River Valley Communities of Fillmore, Piru, and Santa Paula. This extension campus is a model on how institutions of higher learning can combine innovative programs, student support, and instructional technologies to provide outstanding learning opportunities and community services. Ventura College East Campus also serves as the center of operations for Ventura College Off-Campus Programs, including Dual Enrollment.
