About Glendale Community College

In 1926, higher education was reserved for a relative few, but farsighted citizens in Glendale recognized the need to open doors to academic and vocational instruction to a broader base of the community. As a result, Glendale citizens voted to form a community college, or junior college as it was then called, as part of the Glendale Unified School District. Through the years Glendale Junior College continued to grow. In 1971, as the college became more responsive to the needs of the greater Glendale community, the name was officially changed to Glendale Community College District. Fast forward to 2014 - Glendale Community College is a dynamic institution with more than 25,000 students. They are enrolled in college-credit at the main campus, continuing education at the Garfield campus, community services classes held throughout the community, and the Professional Development Center located in Montrose. The college serves an ethnically diverse student body with no single group forming a majority.
