(Program for Accelerated College Education)

PACE is a program designed to support working adult, transfer students to complete their bachelor's degree. Two of the main benefits of being a PACE student are reserved seating in major courses during the first enrollment period each semester and intensive academic advising. Our accelerated course structure is designed to help you balance the demands of a full time job, a family, and an education. Please note: You must be admitted to the University first in order to apply to the PACE program.

Program Structure and Requirements

In their first semester, all PACE students take a low-stress 1 unit course specifically designed to support your transition to the university. It will go over campus resources, creating an academic plan, career planning, stress/time management, and provide check in opportunities. In addition, students are expected to take a minimum of six units each semester, or risk being discontinued from the PACE program.
