Colleges in California: Universities, Trade and Technical Schools

California Colleges Summary

As one might expect due to its population and size, California has the largest number of colleges and adult education schools in the United States. California has more than 650 such schools, and more than 200 more than the next closest state (New York).

This carries over to enrollment levels as nearly 2.5 million students go to such colleges and schools, nearly double the student population of the next largest state (Texas). However, California ranks only 10th in terms of percent of its population which are enrolled in these schools.

Interestingly, just over 10% of California's students make use of dorm rooms. California ranks the 3rd lowest in the country for this metric. While California has the largest number of public colleges in the United States (more than 150), this represents less than 25% of the adult education schools in the state. Only 8 states have a lower percentage of public schools.

The California Department of Education is based in Sacramento, the capital city of California, and can be found at 1430 N Street. The address for the California DOE web site is: http://www.cde.ca.gov/.
