Adults in a learning environment.

Bakersfield College Adult Education

Bakersfield College’s Adult Education Program provides short-term, Career Development College Preparation (CDCP) courses giving students a tuition-free option to get back to college and earn a certificate.

We serve all students including disadvantaged individuals (homeless, immigrants, adult learners, at-risk youth), and those who are learning English as a second language. Our goal is to support students on a path towards educational attainment and successful careers.
