President's Message

Lori Adrian

Dear Students:

Welcome to Coastline Community College. I am delighted that you have chosen Coastline for pursuing your associate degree, career/technical certificate, transfer preparation, or attainment of basic skills for college readiness. You have made an excellent choice. Coastline is an innovative college that is deeply committed to academic excellence and student success. We have an outstanding student-centered team of faculty and staff who are flexible and who genuinely enjoy working with students in both face-to-face formats or online. Coastline offers complete programs at our campuses in Newport Beach, Westminster (Le-Jao), and Garden Grove as well as online through our top-notch distance learning program.

The 2015-2016 school year is one of restoration and re-invigoration. With the passage of California's Proposition 30, Coastline is able to offer approximately 85% more classes overall for the 2015-2016 school year compared to the year before. By adding sections and seats, we know that you will be able to complete faster and transfer sooner.

Coastline is continuing to strengthen and expand our academic degree and transfer programs, as well as our Career and Technical Education and Basic Skills programs—both on-site and online. Our programs, for example our accelerated degree/transfer program called STAR, are designed for students who are academically focused and highly motivated. Our career technical programs, which also include degree and transfer preparation programs, are designed to meet the current, emerging, and future needs of business and industry in terms of employees' knowledge and skills.

If your goal is to attain a degree, prepare for transfer, get a new job or advance in your chosen career, Coastline is your college. Coastline is proud to be "Tomorrow's College Today" through innovative, flexible, and high-quality programs. I am certain that the variety of academic programs and career-training we offer at Coastline will suit your goals and your passion.

Please remember that our student-centered team is here to assist you. Take advantage of the comprehensive array of support services that are available to you as a Coastline student. A great "first stop" would be meeting with one of our counselors, who can answer questions about which classes or degree programs are best suited for your long-term career goals.

Best wishes for a wonderful academic experience here at Coastline.


Loretta P. Adrian, Ph.D., President
