Contra Costa Community College District, including Los Medanos College in Pittsburg and its Brentwood Center, are among the first 15 colleges in the state to be involved in a program that allows students to quickly enroll in online courses offered at other eligible community colleges among the 116 in the state without completing another college application.
In addition, transcripts and financial aid are also coordinated to streamline these processes for students, college officials said in a news release.
“If students can’t find the class they need that suits their schedule at their own campus, the (program) provides an easy and seamless way for them to take a course online at other community colleges in the system,“ said district Dean of Distance Education Joanna Miller. “This expanded access to online classes will ultimately help our students complete their educational goals and advance more quickly toward their careers or four-year colleges.”
This is a collaborative project among California’s community colleges and is funded by a grant from the California Community College Chancellor’s Office.
