First-Year Pathways


Pathways helps you transition from high school to college smoothly and succeed academically. Before you begin at PCC, you will attend a one-week summer Jam, where you'll study in a friendly environment, learn how to prepare well for tests, and create a network of friends who will support you during your first year in college. We will continue to support you as you begin as a PCC student and transition into college life.
