Public Higher Education

Imperial Valley College, the region’s community college is located about 13 miles south of Brawley. For additional information, see http://www.imperial.edu

Brawley, though, is home to an extension of San Diego State University.  

The Brawley SDSU site is affiliated with San Diego State University’s Imperial Valley Campus which is located in the City of Calexico, 30 miles from Brawley. http://www.ivcampus.sdsu.edu In addition to receiving certificates and two-year degrees, several hundred Imperial Valley College students annually transfer to four-year universities. The goal of the IVC’s transfer program is to ensure that a student moving to a university as a junior after attending IVC is on equal footing with a student who completed the first two years at the university.
