Spend less, earn more

THIS is where it starts!
You don't have to have it all figured out to begin making plans for your future. While some students will tell you that selecting a career path was an obvious choice, others need more time to explore their options. Either way, we're here to help you make real choices about your future, your way.
You'll need to select a classification to get started. Are you seeking a degree, vocational training, or a few skill-building courses? The College's admissions Web page will help you determine your classification and program requirements.
Students who are "undecided" can opt for the A.A. Degree (university transfer degree).
