Program for Accelerated College Education
How does PACE Work?
PACE courses are team taught in an interdisciplinary environment. PACE has two 8-week "quarters" during a 16 week semester. Classes meet one night per week, from 5:45pm to 10:00pm. There are 3 "all day" Saturday conferences and 1 half-day Saturday conference required per 8 week session. This set up allows working adults to earn up to 12 units of credit per semester. To earn these credits as a non-PACE full-time evening student, an individual would be required to take classes 4 evenings per weeks over a 16 week period.
How do I enroll in PACE?
Students wishing to enroll in PACE must first file an application for admission to Los Angeles Harbor College in the Admissions and Records office, or fill it out an online application, and then make an appointment to take the English and Math Placement Tests. The only requirement for PACE involvement is eligibility to enroll in English 28.
The purpose of offering PACE?
PACE is a transfer program! That is, its purpose is to prepare students to transfer to a 4-year institution of higher learning. The program is not designed for specific majors. Students should plan to fulfill major requirements once they have been accepted to a 4-year university.
