Inland Colleges Could Soon Experience Improved Access to Education

Sacramento, CA

California is piloting a new program at twenty-four community colleges aimed at allowing students to take classes at other learning institutions. The program will provide access to a new online course system that allows courses to be shared across campuses around the state. In other words, students at one campus can take high-demand classes online through another school if those courses are not available at their home campus thus providing an opportunity for community college students to graduate faster. 

Although students can currently enroll in online classes at different campuses, to do so, they must apply and go through a separate admissions and registration process at each campus. The pilot program mitigates this barrier. 

Although there are only three Local colleges participating in the pilot including Victor Valley College and Barstow Community College in San Bernardino County and Mt. San Jacinto College in Riverside College, both the Riverside and San Bernardino Community College Districts have discussed increased program participation by the end of 2017. 

In California, there are more than 2.1 million students enrolled at 113 community colleges.
