Woodland Community College (WCC) became the second college in the Yuba Community College District when it was granted its accreditation in 2008, making it California's 110th community college. The college serves approximately 6,205 students annually, and is a HSI within the Sacramento region. The college has two outreach centers in the City of Williams and in the City of Clearlake.
In addition to a strong focus on transfer programs with partner institutions, WCC offers a variety of modalities to support distance learning, Career Education (CE), and other life-long learning opportunities. The college is poised to open a new Performing Arts and Culinary Services Building in late 2023 and offer competitive men's and women's athletic programs.
