Welcome to CTE Transitions at Pasadena City College.  CTE Transitions helps students earn college credit, encourages participation in the PCC SummerTech Institute before entering college, and culminates with GUARANTEED classes for those who are a part of our DesignTech Pathway.  It is designed to help students gain academic knowledge, employability, technical skills, and transfer if that is your desire.  Programs are intended to lead to an associate's degree or a certificate in a specific career field, and ultimately, to high wage, high skill employment or advanced postsecondary training.

So who is a CTE Transitions student?  Someone interested in transitioning into a career pathway that will lead toward a future career...someone who would like to connect their academics to the real-world...somone who might desire attending a university after attending community college...ultimately, someone who wants to improve academically and they have decided to move beyond the life of being a student to that of a learner.

***High School Students Earn College Credit

***Teachers Create An Articulation Agreement

  1. Talk to your high school counselor to find out if your school/ROP has an articulation agreement with PCC..
  2. Consider your major/career interests and take a course in a career pathway of interest in high school with a "B" grade 
    or better; along with any additional requirements stipulated by the articulation agreement.
  3. If you are in an articulated class at your high school complete a PCC Application to get a Student ID Number and use it to open a "New Student" CATEMA Account.

Curious as to whether your school has ever had a high school articulation agreements.
