Learning Communities (LC) allow students to enroll in a preset group of classes with other students who share the same passions, interests, or specific field of study. Students take major and general education classes together (between 1-3 semesters) and work closely with specific faculty and counselors assigned to their learning community and invested in student success. Programs are co-created for students starting their higher education journey at Skyline College.
We invite you to explore your Learning Community options with your Counselor using

The Fall 2023 semester starts on Wednesday, August 16, 2023! Please visit the Registration page for more information. Please contact your Counselor or set-up an appointment to connect with a Counselor via your SMCCD OneLogin account (instructions can be found here: SMCCD Student Success Link) to ensure a completed Student Educational Plan (SEP) is active and you have a valid registration date for the semester.
By connecting college success courses, general education requirements, and relevant, student-focused and thematic curriculum, learning communities support pathways to earning a degree or certificate. There are two main categories of Learning Communities: College Success + General Education and Major + Degree Pathways (below you will find the search term and links to find the Learning Community specific courses on WebSchedule).
