Imagine what it’s like to take your child to day care in between your college courses; to study after working a full day and caring for your family, all the while dreaming of doing something more. Many community college students juggle such responsibilities while pursuing a college education. Their goals — secure a better job, improve their quality of life and make a difference. Transferring to a university, especially a prestigious research university, seems unattainable, the expenses too great, the requirements too rigid, the student demographics too exclusive. And, for low- to moderate-income, first-generation college students in particular, it is nothing short of an impossible dream.
Enter the USC SCholars Program, an outreach collaboration that encourages high-achieving community college students to transfer to selective research universities, supporting and helping them with the process.
How does the program work? Students from East Los Angeles Community College (ELAC), Los Angeles Trade-Technical College (LATTC) and Los Angeles City College (LACC) are welcome take advantage of several opportunities offered by the SCholars
Program such as:
- Office hours
- Held during the fall and spring at ELAC, LATTC, and LACC, respectively.
