 2018 – 2019 CCCP Scholars Program

UCLA’s Center for Community College Partnerships (CCCP) presents the CCCP Scholars Program. The goal of this program is to motivate, inform, and prepare students to transfer from a California community college to selective Top Tier Research Institutions such as UCLA. Students in the program have access to UCLA’s summer and year-long academic preparatory transfer programs which guide students through the community college experience, the application and admissions process, research and pre-graduate opportunities, and career exploration. CCCP Scholars have a higher rate of admission to selective institutions and are eligible for special scholarships. This program is grounded on academic excellence, social justice, and educational equity.

Pathways to Four-Year Universities

Pathways to Four Year Universities is a new alliance between UC Berkeley and the Peralta Community College District

Pathways is an agreement that allows for a number of benefits to our colleges and students to pave the way for Peralta students to transfer to UC Berkeley or another four year university.

  • Pathways places UC Berkeley advisers, through their Center for Educational Partnerships, at the member community colleges.  These advisers are meant to have regular availability at our colleges to advise students on transfer requirements to UC Berkeley or other 4-year universities.
  • Pathways allows Peralta students to take UC Berkeley Summer Sessions courses to make progress towards their AA degree at the Peralta Colleges. The summer courses will remain on their UC Berkeley transcript and count toward their degree should they transfer to UC Berkeley.Pathways creates a financial aid consortium agreement between Peralta and UC Berkeley that allows our colleges to package financial aid (Pell, Cal Grant, and loans) based on UC Berkeley’s Summer Sessions’ costs to help students pay for their courses at UC Berkeley.
