"From 1965-1967, the college offered courses and programs on the campus of Eureka High School. More than 1800 students registered at the College in 1965-66. The initial staff of the college consisted of 31 full-time faculty and administrative staff and approximately 85 part-time faculty."

The Del Norte Education Center in Crescent City was constructed in 1981; and the Mendocino Education Center, just south of Fort Bragg, was constructed in 1986. The college also maintains the Klamath-Trinity Instructional Site on the Hoopa Indian Reservation, approximately 60 miles northeast of Eureka and the Garberville Instructional Site, approximately 70 miles south of Eureka."
