Information Meetings for New Cohort Program with Fresno State!


Last month we formed a historic partnership with the Fresno State STEP program which will help our transfer students to get their upper-division classes in a 2 year cohort model at CSU Fresno in the fall semester. The cohort will have classes two days a week and will get guided support and advising on their way to their B.A. degree and credential. We will be hosting two informational meetings regarding sign-ups for this new cohort on March 15th at Noon and at 5:00 p.m in the WHC Lemoore Conference Center. If you are interested be sure to drop by and put your name down.
