If San Bernardino Valley College seems to be bustling with more students lately, its because we have surpassed last year's spring headcount. There are 10,492 students enrolled in
classes at SBVC for Spring 2023. This exceeds the number of Wolverines enrolled in Spring 2021 (10,142) and Spring 2022 (8,988).

"We're thrilled to welcome so many new and returning students to San Bernardino Valley College," SBVC Interim President Dr. Linda Fontanilla said. "They know that at SBVC, they will receive a quality education from knowledgeable and established professors and instructors who put their students first."

SBVC is accessible to more people than ever, with 683 online course offerings available for spring. Nearly three-quarters of all SBVC students are enrolled in at least one online class, with some logging in from as far away as Iowa. More
