|After your first semester/year in college, you may be interested in a unique program
offered at PCC. The English 1A course within Ujima qualifies as one of a minimum of
six courses needed to complete the Scholars Program. The PCC Scholars Program provides
highly motivated students with an intellectually challenging educational experience
designed to prepare them for a successful transition from community college to university.
The Program includes partnerships between PCC and UCLA (Transfer Alliance Program),
Pomona College (PATH), Occidental College (Preferred Admission Agreement), UC Riverside
(HART), UC Irvine (Honors Transfer Program) and other institutions. The program offers
high-achieving students strong academic preparation and curriculum planning to help
them succeed in their major and achieve the B.A./B.S. degree after transfer. In addition
to the academically enriched program, Scholars students receive support services from
a specially designated counselor and faculty coordinator at the college. Students
also begin to forge links with the transfer institutions by attending special orientation
programs at the universities. Ask your Ujima counselor or Harry Bloodgood (Counselor,
L104) for more information.
