One of the BEST community colleges in the State! After spending three wonderful years here, I will finally be transferring to UCLA this upcoming Fall! Everything is very well thought out and planned here - the website/portal is really clear and user friendly, counseling is quite organized and useful, and professors are very passionate about teaching their subjects.

I have just finished my first semester of college and I would not have asked for a better experience! I took 14 units during this 16 week semester, and I did not find the work load too hard.
Every professor I had really cared about their students and liked their jobs. They are all very smart, kind, and excited to teach. Because this was my first experience with having college professors, I do not have anyone to compare them to, but I definitely feel as though these were the best professors! Thanks to these amazing professors, I finished strong with a 4.0 GPA!
This school has also helped me save TONS of money because of the PCC Promise, which gives me and many others our first year tuition free! This is another great reason for why everybody should attend this school!
I really have enjoyed attending PCC over the past year and a half. It has helped me so much by being able to get my GE classes out of the way without going into debt at all! The professors I have had at PCC have all been so great! They have all been very helpful and nice and motivated to help students get through the material and be ready to transfer. I have heard from many students that have transferred out that lots of the undergrad classes here at PCC are actually harder than the classes that one would take at another 4 year university. So you will definitely be learning the material that you need to know in order to transfer to another school and finish up your degree. If you have to the opportunity to save money by attending PCC I would highly recommend it!
