San Joaquin Valley College, Inc. signs agreement to acquire Santa Barbara Business College

September 23, 2019

San Joaquin Valley College, Inc. (SJVCI), the parent organization of San Joaquin Valley College (SJVC) and Carrington College, has signed an agreement to acquire Santa Barbara Business College (SBBC).

The proposed transaction requires accreditor and regulatory approvals before it is complete. Once approved, SBBC would continue to operate as an independent college. There will be no change for current students and faculty for either SBBC or SJVC as a result of the change in ownership. SBBC will continue to provide instruction and student services without interruption.

This marks a significant milestone and transition for SBBC. The Johnston family is pleased to pass on the legacy and well-being of SBBC to the Perry family given their proven track record in operating a quality career college. The planned transition will provide a new path forward for SBBC and its current students, faculty and staff.
