Center for Community College Partnerships

"The Center for Community College Partnerships (CCCP) develops and strengthens academic partnerships between UCLA and California community colleges. Through a multi-faceted approach with efforts at the student, faculty and administrative levels, CCCP works to increase the academic preparation and competitiveness for community college transfer students, particularly those who are first generation, low-income or historically underrepresented. CCCP also helps community colleges to develop a transfer-sending culture, and the university to develop a transfer-receptive culture."

As a CCCP Scholar, you will benefit from:

  • A peer mentor who has already transferred to UCLA and can help you navigate the community college to maximize your opportunities.
  • Saturday Academies (Fall, Winter, and Spring) that can provide you with more information about how to maximize the university after transferring.
  • Coaching and assistance on the UC application and Personal Insight Questions.
  • Major and career exploration, resume assistance, scholarship assistance  and much more!
  • Opportunities to experience lectures given by current UCLA and UC professors
  • Access to UC Admissions Offers and much, much more
