Pasadena City College has been selected as one of 16 California community colleges and universities to be honored for their work in supporting transfer students.

Each year, the Campaign for College Opportunity selects several California Community Colleges and California State Universities to honor as Champions of Higher Education. Selected schools are honored for significantly increasing the number of students earning an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT), enrolling those students at a CSU with junior status and graduating ADT earners with a bachelor's degree. Today, PCC was announced as one of the sixteen colleges and universities who will be celebrated as a 2018 Champion of Higher Education for Excellence in Transfer.

During the 2016-2017 academic year, Pasadena City College awarded 1,040 Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT), the second largest number of ADTs awarded amongst California community college campuses. 

We are proud of the work we do to help our students achieve their dreams of transferring and excited to be honored as a 2018 Champion of Higher Education!

The selected colleges and universities will be honored on December 4, 2018, at the 3rd Annual Champions of  Higher Education Celebration in Los Angeles. To learn more about how the honorees are selected, click here.
