High School Students

  concentrates on critical reading and writing
 Take four years of math while in high school, including
  Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 with efforts to achieve at least a “B”
 In your junior and senior year, take the Early Assessment
  Program test to find out if you are on track to be ready for

 Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC)
In response to SB 1440, the Academic Senates for California
Community Colleges and California State University decided
to develop a faculty-led, state-wide, concerted effort to
identify the course content for new associate degrees for
transfer… The C-ID infrastructure is being used to develop
and vet the transfer model curriculum (TMC) in each of the
most common transfer majors.
