Unlike technical programs, El Centro’s transfer degrees lack prescribed pathway options. Developmental education options sometimes lack a cohesiveness that leads to student confusion. El Centro’s Pathway Effort will provide guided pathways for transfer students while removing barriers that hinder student success.

Self-directed Pathways

A series of self-directed print and web tools will be designed for AA and AS degrees. Pathways will include part-time and full-time options,  online and hybrid options, and specific block-scheduled programs.

Enhance Summer Bridge

The summer bridge enhancement will focus on college readiness for recent HS graduates, accelerated boot camps, and contextualized developmental education.
