Academics Rating

the school has both college oriented and trade oriented offerings. they try to limit class size and many of the classes are small and have good teacher student ratios. the classes fill up quickly due to high demand.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Academics Rating

I take a full load, which means 12 units a semester. I currently have a GPA of 3.85. I am hoping to transfer to UCLA next year as a political science/economics student. I do believe that El Camino College prepares each student for the next level. If your goal is to attend a 4 year school, El Camino is a wise choice.
