The program aims to:

  • Provide a clear guided pathway that guarantees graduation in four years
  • Create networking opportunities
  • Remove frequently encountered barriers when navigating college life
  • Connecting industry partners with our students for internships and jobs  

Students must commit to following the prescribed course pathway and maintaining a 3.0 GPA. El Camino College and CSUDH are the second to offer this pathway in the state following the successful cohort of California State University Monterey Bay and Hartnell College in the Bay area and the first to offer it in Southern California.


Students with a GPA below 3.0 will need to submit a one-page statement with their application explaining the reason for their current GPA and a plan for maintaining a 3.0 in the program.

  • Enrichment Activities: Students in this program participate in conferences, workshops, and internships that will connect them with industry partners earlier in their college career.
