CLAVE focuses on providing students with the key values and benefits of transferring from a community college to a four-year university. The program is open to all PCC students but is specifically geared toward the successful enrollment of the Chicanx/Latine student population. Our goal is to help students meet their transfer goals by providing access to academic counseling, advising, application assistance, and other resources.
