Program for Accelerated College Education

PACE (Program for Accelerated College Education) is a bachelor's degree completion program designed for working adult transfer students. The benefits of being a PACE student are reserved seating in major courses during the first enrollment period each quarter and intensive academic advising. Our accelerated course structure is designed to help you balance the demands of a full time job, a family, and an education. Please note: You must be admitted to the University first in order to apply to the PACE program. 

Program Structure and Requirements

PACE students are provided with a program curriculum roadmap that provides a quarter-by-quarter schedule of their major's course offerings. Additionally students are required to meet with their PACE counselor to create an academic plan. Students are expected to take a minimum of eight units each quarter, or risk being discontinued from the PACE program.
