Pasadena City College

Location: Pasadena, CA Number of Students: 34,050 Suburban 
Pasadena City College serves a large and diverse suburban district in the Los Angeles metro region. The college is a destination for students desiring to transfer to a four-year institution and serves those students well – students who transfer from Pasadena complete bachelor’s degrees at rates far above the national average. Pasadena is also deeply engaged in faculty-led efforts to identify inequities in student outcomes and close course-completion gaps.
