This course serves as a bridge from high school to community college to the university. Many of our local high schools offer the course in dual enrollment programs where students receive both high school and college credit. High school counselors and students see the course as valuable preparation for college.

The course helps students to persist in community colleges and to transfer to universities. In the San Diego area, the course has become an important part of transfer programs to the university. Most universities have college success programs to improve student success and retention. 19
