A picturesque campus in one of Southern California’s most pleasant small cities, Pasadena City College (PCC) offers professional programs as well as strong academics for students who wish to transfer to a four-year school.
Located on the edge of the city of Pasadena, the PCC campus is made up of remodeled buildings and scenic outdoor areas.
Right next door is the city of Pasadena which has world-class shopping, great restaurants, theatres and museums.
Academics at PCC include a Teacher Education program and programs in Business, Engineering, English, Health Sciences, Languages, Mathematics, Library Science and Performing and Visual Arts. Many students from these programs transfer to UC, Cal State, or private universities and colleges.
PCC also has a substantial number of professional two-year programs in such fields as Accounting, Automotive Technology, Cosmetology, Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Paralegal Studies and Speech Language Pathology Assisting. There is also a professional program in Film and Television Production.
The PCC campus sponsors a student-run radio station, a student art gallery, a theatre, as well as student organizations and recreational opportunities.
PCC has an open admissions policy for all students, regardless of educational background.
Those who reside in California can enjoy a reduced tuition. Financial aid is also available to those who qualify. There is also an Upward Bound program for students from challenged home environments.
40% of students gave Pasadena City College 1 stars overall.
Pasadena City College has a great environment for students to enhance their abilities in their knowledge. What I like the most of PCC is the faculty staff that helps the students become better learners. My experience with the professors I've had has been a pleasure. In the writing center of the English department I have received great help from staff that has made me feel comfortable asking them for help and advice on how to write well written essays for my english classes. Overall, there is nothing bad to say about Pasadena City College. The college provides the students with advanced technology that is a perfect for students to take advantage of and of course great people that care for the learners.
The campus is beautiful and calming. Some of the buildings may be a bit older, but many have been or are being renovated. The library is a great place to study, whether it is by yourself or with friends. One of my favorite things about the library is that you are allowed to have food and drinks, which many school libraries don't allow. Prospective students: If you are looking for a community college to get your AA, or to get a good education and the credits needed to transfer to a four year university give PCC a look, especially if you are close by.
