Bridge Program

The Bridge Program

California Community Colleges and Antioch University Santa Barbara have joined forces with the Bridge Program. Now you can earn a bachelor’s degree by transferring 80 semester units toward the 120 needed for graduation.

Why the Bridge Program?

A quality education. The greatest guarantee we offer is quality. Antioch University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, highly-respected, with experience in providing legendary academic programs and innovative learning opportunities. We pride ourselves on small class-sizes—with no more than 25 students in a class, personalized attention from our faculty, and reflective evaluation of students’ coursework.

It is cost-effective and time-efficient. Students save a substantial amount of money by completing as many as 80 units at a community college and then paying AUSB fees for the last 40 (60 quarter) semester units.


Go to school in Santa Barbara. The AUSB campus is located in the heart of Downtown Santa Barbara. Through the Bridge Program, in addition to attending classes on-campus some hybrid-online courses are offered. Many of our students commute to or live near campus in Santa Barbara

Support through the transfer process. AUSB’s Office of Admissions works to address students’ interests, needs, and concerns through the application process. We encourage you to meet with an AUSB Admission Advisor to learn more about how the Bridge Program could best serve you, and devise a meaningful academic plan for transfer.

Flexible transfer requirements. Math or Science courses are not required for transfer to AUSB. AUSB enables students to gain competency in mathematics as it is applied in everyday work and social/behavioral sciences, through its own statistics course.
